Poet’s Last Wish

Sitting alone at my trusty writing table once again

Wondering where the creative images have been


Touching the early morning peace and stillness

Writing with inspiring words, filled with richness


Crafting poetry, a pleasing journey to thrill

Seeking new ideas for a blank sheet to fill


Smiling as my loyal pen walks with haste

Hoping these words provide a rich taste


Dreaming of writing a poem that’s a big hit

Understanding that many will be left adrift


Pausing to think of outstanding poetry awards

Knowing that finishing may be my only reward


Finding more ambition from the morning light

Feeling my mind beginning to take long flight


Adding to a poem line by thoughtful line

Relishing the energy my words will find


Nearing the end of my writing journey, years from now

Looking back at my poetry, and taking a last, final bow


Realizing that long after I have left and been gone

Appreciating others reading my words, like a song
