I Wish


I wish
I wish I could touch the skies
as I fly up high
and watch the earth underneath me lie
lie down like a magical pie
I can't
So I would'nt

I wish I could send you a dozen roses
with a dozen nightly glows
But we both know
They would sadly die of an overdose
of not breathing
before our momentous meeting
I could
But I would'nt

I wish I could walk the seven seas
and turn sea water into wine
The thought alone
sends shivers to my spine
I can't
So I would'nt

I wish I could send you a neckless
made of expensive exquisite rare diamonds
Without having to steal from public funds
Or perhaps forge huge financial bonds
To afford such a present
I could
But I would'nt

I wish that I could tell you
whats on my mind
The right words, I am still trying
so hard to find

I wish I could heal the sick
help the poor, the old and the weak
Think of how many people
I could cure in a space of one week


I wish that trees and leaves could talk
Think of all the crowds that will flock
around forest paths to have a walk
And listen to years of mysteries unfold
into unsolved lifes puzzle
you are yet to be told

I wish that some dreams could come true
because one and one makes two
And maybe I could finally be with you

Most of all
I wish that you were here
Sometimes that empty space
In this day and place
I simply cannot bear

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
