My substitute

My substitute
 1
 
 
 
 
If I was to be published then I would have no need for a wish.
 2
If I held my own book in my hands,
 3
Then that would mean that I had accomplished something.
 4
If you were able to feel my poetry,
 5
Then you would find me smiling.
 6
I would always be smiling when I met up with you;
 7
If only I could be.
 8
If I ever succeed, then please accept a thank you from me.
 9
If I never make it, then my existence will have counted for nothing.
 10
 
 
 
 
Only time will tell if I ever did anything right.
 11
With you on my side, I will at least have an eye,
 12
On my future writing; you are my reason to try.
 13
I hope one day I will be able to write something that everybody likes.
 14
 
 
 
 
Fly on a wire; dance on the moon.
 15
Sky dive into a career; parachute.
 16
Become a light up in the sky.
 17
Your name in brights; I love seeing through your mind’s eye.
 18
You see all that I could be;
 19
You believe in me like I never did.
 20
I hope I do not disappoint;
 21
All I have ever been is me.
 22
 
 
 
 
Now through rose-tinted eyes I look at life.
 23
So sad to be lost without a wife.
 24
The one thing I always wanted, I will never have…
 25
Please do not be sad.
 26
I am where I am meant to be.
 27
I may not have love,
 28
But I love poetry…
 29
It is my substitute for love and all other things.
