A Wish - Poem by welkin siskin

Be the deep of sorrows your delight
Forever to dwell with smiles;
However dark the evening is,
Be your life the light
To take mild tracks miles and miles.
Be walks you tread on ever gainful
To permeate out wisdom of lesson;
Be heart yours spirited, loving and faithful;
And hopes you let rise high on and on.
Be hands yours ever striving
To bring in the joys of living
Across the world of ignorance and misery;
Your art an auxiliary forever be,
To open the eyes of million minds
Those held off of lights and shines
