My aspirations

Upon a splendid moon I placed a thought of you 
Not knowing where you’d rest 
A notion of likeness to be my vision bright and clear   
Although my ambitions that may be far fetched 
In the heart of desire I etched my dreams
To be well known from my words and lyrics
To be appreciated and genuinely admired  
As a poet and writer a teller of story 
For if this desire should be fulfilled 
I would be recklessly mad with optimism
I know now I shall never stop this vision 
This prayer, this hunger 
For if I do
I shall forget myself completely
