I Can't

I wish I could play the piano
and have the keys dance under me,
create a beautiful song
or a memorable melody.

I wish I could paint a painting
of all the splendor that I see.
A brush stroke here, another there
And soon you would see what I can see.

But I can't.
That's just not who I am.

I wish I could write a poem
that would give a glimpse of me,
that would make us all be better
and strive to be what we can be.

But I can't.
