Sometimes

Women loved, you could have been a lover;
Friends expected, you could have been a friend;
Ideas elaborated, you could have been a thinker;
Colleagues valued, you could have been a comrade;
Fixed problems, you could have been a solver;
Children hugged, you could have been a child;
Earnestly addressed, you could have been a salesman;
Neighbours stirred, you could have been a leader;
Truth preserved, you could have been a sage;
Wife trusted, you could have been a husband;
Friction mounted, you could have been a negotiator;
Counsel sought, you could have been a mentor;
Daughter adored, you could have been a hero.

Left alone, you might have been a poet
Not knowing all else you already are.

So what if no one else did endorse
And so what if it is only sometimes.
