As You Wish - Poem by Jessie Lima

The world is round
And what goes around...
Certainly comes around.
Looking at the object in my hands I think,
What makes it so special after all?
When i needed it,
I had it.
So now i must make somebody else happy.
The woman is walking towards me now
How stupid is to cry!
But I can't stop myself.
She is asking for it gently,
All I can say is:
'As you wish.'
My diamond ring,
The only proof of my dead's husband love,
I had to do it,
What will my children eat if I don't sale it?
When he died, he left nothing but bills.
We are going to some place else,
We are going home.
As you wished love!
We miss you.

Note: (when someone you love dies you lose everything you have, not just money or any kind of belongings, but who you were and what you hoped to be. Is a new begining. A sad one.)
