If I Had the Talent


If I had the talent

I would write a book

About the world from my point of view

Here in my little nook


If I had the talent

I'd always want to sing

My lovely voice I'd always share

And happiness I'd bring


If I had the talent

I'd cook the day away

The house would be filled with pans of cake

And perhaps some yummy flambe 


If I had the talent

I would play a sport

My days would be spent on the soccer field

Or perhaps in the tennis court


If I had the talent

I'd try talking to that boy

My flirting skills would work out well

And that would bring much joy


If I had the talent

I'd play an instrument

I'd express myself through music more

And catch myself a gent


If I had the talent 

I would often love to dance

The celebrities on TV shows

Wouldn't stand a chance


But could someone without talent

Help their friends in times of need?

Know when to comfort those in pain?

Know when to stop or heed?

But I say that is talent itself!

We each have different skills to share

We all have talent as long as we help

Our loved ones and show that we truly care

This poem is about: 



You obviously do have talent!! I love the carefree and light-hearted rhythm.
