I Want To Write A Poem

Rating: 5.0

I want to write a poem, she said
To share what I might say
To give my views on how to live
A new and better way

To walk the talk and do my part
For country, hearth, and home
To share the feelings of my heart
I want to write a poem

I want to say that happiness
Is fickle more than fair
For joy is not a thing to plan
But shows in how we care

The sweeter things in life are free
No greater still in Rome
For those who dream of what could be
I want to write a poem

To take a stand for what is right
Is how you find your voice
But when you take a chance on love
You make a perfect choice

The simple joys of life are few
In sand and sea and foam
But while the world is fresh and new
I want to write a poem

The greatest love is how you live
By tiny acts of good
For love is not what you have done
But doing what you could

The beauty of a brighter sun
Is everywhere you roam
But even when my day is done
I want to write a poem!
