One Last Chance

If I could have a single wish,
a wish for only me...
I wouldn't have to ponder
to know what it would be.

I'd wish for one last chance at love
before I carry on,
One final little spark of fire
to flash before the dawn.

To put a sparkle in my eye
a dazzle in my smile
the spring of love within my step
to send me out in style...

To know the joy of coupledom,
the thrill of passion's kiss...
to share the gift of love once more
would be my final bliss.

Perhaps it is a selfish wish
that I embrace today...
but, nonetheless, it is the one
to fulfill my heart's array.

If I could have a single wish,
a wish for only me...
I wouldn't have to ponder
to know what it would be.

No_Clue, you have done it yet again! I love, love your poetry and those clean, beautiful lines. I can see you have loved well and been loved well. Perhaps a few dissapointments in there but nothing that didn't come back full circle. My love...voted up, awesome and beautiful!

A tiny wish is like a breeze upon a flowered meadow - dancing, twirling, floating like cute bee fellow.

It lasts forever, don't you see, as dreams are like Othello - tragic beyond belief, like Desdemona's pillow. Her life a lie had brought to end as if a peccadillo.

So, for you a one with a truest heart and deserving so much more, like Othello's wife you see my friend, a thousand years adored, that I for one predict for you, like Apollo, don't you see, that true love will discover you, yet patient you must be...

The only limit is the one we place on ourselves. Everything is possible. If you can imagine it then you can conceive it. Your poem is a beautiful message for everyone to dare to wish for what they imagine. Wonderful. Thank you
