Never 

If I never write another word,

Be this the one that defines me

 

If I never sing another song,

Be this the one that moves me

 

If I never see another dawn,

Be this the one that awakens me

 

If I never dream another dream,

Be this the one that inspires me

 

If I never learn from another child,

Be this the one that humbles me

 

If I never read another book,

Be this the one that changes me

 

If I never climb another mountain,

Be this the one that exhausts me

 

If I never fight another day,

Be this the one that dignifies me

 

If I never rage another injustice,

Be this the one that abides me

 

If I never friend another enemy

Be this the one that honours me

 

If I never tell another truth,

Be this the one that forgives me

 

If I never adventure another star,

Be this the one that captivates me

 

If I never feel another emotion,

Be this the one that pains me

 

If I never slay another demon,

Be this the one that terrifies me

 

If I never think another thought,

Be this the one that destroys me

 

If I never chase another rainbow,

Be this the one that colours me

 

If I never paint another canvas

Be this the one that remembers me

 

If I never dance in another storm,

Be this the one that lightening strikes me

 

If I never connect to another soul,

Be this the one that beautifies me

 

If I never touch another hand,

Be this the one that reminds me

 

And if I never feel another love,

Be this the one that outlives me
