Perhaps I May Never Write

I have never written a poem before 
Perhaps I may never write 
But I've listened to stories of writers far beyond
They write so well that I wonder 
How they knew words could ever be arranged so.

I have never written a poem before 
Perhaps I may never write.
I've read poems of writers far beyond
Their words always a comfort 
Always with a beauty and grace which cannot be described 
They surround me and make me think 


I have never written a poem before
Perhaps I may never write.
But If I wrote one 
Will I be as good as others?
Will my poem have a beauty of its own?
Or my poem strike people and make them wonder as I once did?

I have never written a poem before. 
Perhaps I may never write.
I wish I could write a poem 
All fancy which myself will like
I wish I could write a poem 
And make someone wish they could write like me

My wishes might never be granted 
I may never really answer my own questions 
I may never know how good i will write
And it's all because 
I have never written a poem before 
Perhaps I may never write.
