If I could be God for just one night
I could turn all the wrongs into right

Heaven would be here among us
And for all, a never ending justice
Gone would be all the imagery
Of countless evil catastrophe

What a fantastic blessed sight
If I could be God for just one night

Never again tears of a mother shed
Wasted on yet another innocent dead
Too late to save one lost soul
From a darkening stranglehold

Absence of fear, of any mortal fright
If I could be God for just one night

Think of all the good which is gained
Think of an unknown thing such as pain
Behold all which is shone
When love is finely honed

What warmth from peaceful light
If I could be God for just one night

All the children would be saved
As I send back the shadows with a wave
And the wrongs all undone
Together as one

We are love, shining bright
If I could be God for just one night

If only I could be God tonight

This is a good poem... we would all like to change the unplesant things about this world...

Hi JML,

This was good, and if I could make you God for a night I would if this is what you would do.

Very interesting thoughts and if I could be Satan tonight I would tell God that I had made a terrible mistake bringing all this sorrow and hurt and pain into this world and I would ask for his forgiveness and for him to please allow me to dwell in his glorious presence just one more time.   James

This was lovely hon! How I wish you could be God for one night...but things aren't meant to be easy. If we didn't go through pain and struggles, would we really appreciate life for what it is? I tend to think not. Thanks for posting this. Made me think.

Lovely poem, good moral content, even if it was supposed to provoke religious debate.
Well done xxx
