I Wish Poem by Mpho Petrus Manwedi

I Wish

Rating: 5.0


I wish I were the song
That comes to your mind when you are happy
I wish I were the comforting words
Of the song you sing when you are sad
Oh! Yes, I wish I were the sun that brightens your day
Chasing the nightmares away.

I wish I was that breeze,
Gently touching your face
Bringing coolness to your day
But then I wish I was that darkness
Protectively wrapped around you
While you are asleep and uncared for.
Yeah! I wish I was the breath that passeth your lips
Unnoticed, yet so life giving.
I wish I was the heart that beats within you
Strong, loving and caring but yet so fragile.

I wish I was the spirit, which though battered,
Carries you through the storms
Flying you high above the mountains of deceit.
Bringing out the God in you and making you the person you are.
Baby I wish I was your everything.
