I Wish - Poem by Golda C NjiribeakoAlexander

Tonight,
I close my eyes; I make a wish
That I am the pillow beneath your head
Tonight,
I close my eyes I make a wish
That I am the blanket spread over you

Tonight,
I wish I’d be the one to hold
Sway in your heart and thoughts as you
Close your eyes from the bustles of the day
Tonight,
I wish I’d be the one to make you
Smile before the break of the next dawn

At the start of dawn
I wish to be around you
At the start of dawn
I wish to hold you
At the start of dawn
I wish to be the lucky one
to kiss your lips

Tonight...


Abstract from my album “Desert Mystery.”
