Here’s another “manuscript” I have sitting in my files. This is for a children’s picture book. If you have any youngsters hanging around, you might see if they like it…and if they do, let me know!
If I could swim a mile …there on my face you’d see a smile.
If I could run the fastest lap around the track…there’d be no medal that I would lack.
If I could lift the heaviest weight…that would make me feel just great.
If I could jump the highest height…you’d never see me; I’d be out of sight.
If I could strike out every batter who came to the plate…I’d be the best pitcher; there’d be no debate.
If I could hit the bullseye with every arrow…my aim would be super straight and narrow.
If I could bowl a strike down every alley…a perfect score I’d always tally.
If I could make a basket with every ball…it wouldn’t matter if I wasn’t tall.
If I could catch the biggest fish…there’d be little more for me to wish.
If I could always sink a hole in one…playing golf would be so much fun.
If I could spell every word perfectly…I’d easily win every spelling bee.
But of all the things that I could do and I could be,
There would be only one that would mean the most to me.
So if I could be your most cherished friend…that would be the best way this poem could end.
