I Wish….. Poem by Anita Trivedi

I Wish…..

Rating: 4.9

Tonight I wish a star to fall,
Coz I want to make a wish to die
and gift me pall…..

I had heard that when we die we
become a star,
We lost our parents & they went
away so far.
We can just look at them twinkling
in the sky,
It's my birthday & I want to meet them
& so I'm making a wish to die.

Twinkling tiny little star just wait
don't fall now,
Coz my little sister won't allow.
First let her fall asleep,
And this soft pillow near her let
me keep.
She is holding my hand and feeling
so secure,
Her love is really so pure.

Tonight I wish a star to fall,
Coz I want to make a wish to die
and gift me pall…..

My sweet little sister is asleep
So twinkling little star you fall
I want to hug my dad and sleep on
my mom's lap,
And want to say this distance can
never create any gap.

But some horrible dreams disturbed
my sister's sleep,
She is awake now & won't allow me to
Looking up in the sky she told 'Look
there is a star falling tonight.'
And she made a wish that 'Oh! God I
won't ever lose my brother from my sight.'

Tonight I wish a star to fall,
Coz I want to make a wish to die
and gift me pall…..

Hey The innocense and longing of a daughter to have her parents by her side is well depicted in your words..I like the way with simplicity you said so much that most people write paragraphs explaining themselves.Keep the simplicity going it will take you to great heights in your life... -Me

‘It’s my birthday & I want to meet them & so I’m making a wish to die....’ ~ Poets die in imagination and your imagination is vivid/voidless…created gosh/gleam…but I don’t know man dies and become star…may be…poetic or religious faith…overall O’ Posy mind it Poets are immortal… thanks for sharing Regards Ms. Nivedita UK 10/10
