"ONE" - By Monte Selby

One wise old man in his rocking chair,

On his cabin porch and his grey hair,

Is blowing in the Lake Erie wind.


Granddaughter nearly three years old,

Counts her fingers and then her toes,

And the old man can’t help but grin.


She says, “My favorite number’s three,

Cause that’s how old I’m gonna be,

And I’m getting really tall.”


He says, “I like the number one”.

She says, “Grandpa, how come?

That’s really small.”

He says, “Honey not at all.”


One,

Is not always less than two.

It’s like one family full of people,

Who all love me and you.

And it’s like one team,

Where it’s all for one,

And they choose, each one,

For all dreams coming true.

And one is perfect unity.

It’s everything and everyone.

One.


Granddaughter’s bored. She rubs her knee.

She says, “Grandpa, I still like three.

And for my birthday, I want an ice cream cake.”


He knows she’ll never understand, not in his lifetime.

So he offers her his hand,

And they walk down to the lake.


Then she says, right out of the blue,

“Hey there’s just one sky and just one moon,

And one giant breath of air.


And one great big world we should take care of,

And Grandma says there’s always one more to love,

And one more chance to share.


And grandpa, hey grandpa,

don’t we make ONE PERFECT PAIR?”


One,

Is not always less than two.

It’s like one family full of people,

Who all love me and you.

And it’s like one team,

Where it’s all for one,

And they choose, each one,

For all dreams coming true.

And one is perfect unity.

It’s everything and everyone.

One.

One.
