I was told to write

Written by: Tessa Chinery

I was told to write 
But i didn't know what to say.
All i did was sit there,
all darn day.

My thoughts were all jumbled, 
they made no since at all. 
My teacher told us to write.
I said " i will be here until nightfall. 

She told me to open my heart
to explore, search, and find, 
that one thing that would make me write. 
By now i had that one thing in mind. 

So i sat there and wrote all hour. 
I never missed a beat. 
By the time my story was done 
I knew that we would meet.
 
Soon but not soon enough
did my dreams finally come true. 
And i can't wait for that day. 
When i get to be with you. 

Forever is a long time they say. 
But don't they know. 
You can spend for ever with a person, 
and there will be things about them that you don't know.
 
How i wish for that day to come. 
Hoping i will be with you. 
I will stand by you forever,
knowing my dreams have come true.
 
So, i sat there and i looked at my paper, 
looked at my teacher and said with all my might. 
I should have never listened to myself, 
when I said I couldn't write.
