Chance - Poem by Demetress Kirkley

A chance to make you smile,
Is a chance worthwhile,
A chance I would not mind to take,
If it would ease this ache..

I dislike the sound of your heart as it breaks,
Your tears flowing because of someone's mistakes.
But if I could take a chance for a while,
On a path down the aisle..

Dreaming never conjours reality,
Like you would really give that to me,
But if you would,
I wish you could..

To be the next in line,
The chance to make you finally mine,
Show you my heart is your shrine,
If your heart could be thine..

Is a chance worth taking,
If it would ease this aching...
