I Wish - Poem by Sylvia Chidi

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
