All I Want Poem by Faith Elizabeth Brigham

the sun, the sun
the sun will rise
just like always
i'll wake, i'll wake
i'll wake alone
without you there
and say a prayer

i'll wonder, i'll wonder
i'll wonder where
you are right now
i'll pray, i'll pray
you're happy now
that's what i want

are you, are you
are you happy now
i would be glad
if you just knew
that's all i want
that's all i want

    I did like the hope skip and a jump feel to this and It reminds me of a happy school yard rhyme
    Very simplistic in design and very beautiful

    Oh Faith, do you suffer from a stammer! I was feeling quite sorry for you in case this was so. I found it a little disjointed with this repeat process but have read some of your other work and it's a little different this one. What I read of some of the others is nice.
