The Power of One,
one step must start a journey
one word must start each prayer
one voice can speak with wisdom
one touch can show you care

one smile begins a friendship
one laugh will conquer gloom
one candle destroys the darkness
one sunbeam lights a room

one tree can start a forest
one hear can know what is true
one life can make the difference
and that one is… YOU.
