If I Could - Poem by Jim Carlin

If I could paint your portrait
I would choose such colours bright
or even write a poem
The words would be just right.

If I could climb a mountain
I would scale the highest peak
And shout aloud your praises
For all the world to hear.

If I could cross, the oceans wide
I would sail the seven seas
Facing all the perils
And the challenges to mankind.

All these things, I would do for you
No task would be too great
Just to say , "My Darling, Thank You,
For all you done for me."
