If I Should Write A Poem Poem by Bryan Norton

If I Should Write A Poem

Rating: 5.0

If I should write a poem, my last
To celebrate my death
My cause would be, the common man
His life, his love, his breath

His will to serve the larger good
To do what parents must
The legacy of those who work
To build a lasting trust

If I should write a song, my last
My heart should sing the rose
The sweeter scent of beauty brings
Such glory to my nose

The gift of life is nature's bloom
A melody to those
Who hear the song and find the rest
In nature's sweet repose

If I should give a speech, my last
To say my goodly part
Then I would speak on what I know
The feelings of my heart

The chance to serve the ones who lack
Is how we learn to live
The more you love the more you have
A bigger heart to give

If I should run a race, my last
My finish line to face
My fervent wish would be to find
The strength of my own pace

To do the most that I can do
My limits more to test
And thus confirm to this, my soul
I did my very best.
