Wish to be a firefly

I wish I was a firefly
so that you could catch me in your jar...
and I could light your world, just for a while...
till I died in ur arms.

I'll enter ur window left open,
when u have a lonely, breezy moment,
and I would spray some magical healing dust..
on ur tiring palms.

I'd build up d courage to get closer...
and whisper sweet words in your ear..
and hope you see me in ur dreams,
to put a smile on ur face.

I'd also leave my tear drop..
on ur beating heart..
and hope u will miss me when I am dying,
safely tucked in ur embrace.

I'll then wish I am reborn,
as a firefly yet again...
and I'd come running back to you,
as u'd set me back to light.

I will fight against all odds,
I wud defy logic too..
and I'd know you would help me sparkle n shine,
so I could meet you another loving night.

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
