I Wish I Were - Poem by MOHAMMAD SKATI

I wish I were a drop of water to give to the thirsty, but I am not. I wish I were I were a fish to give to the poor fisherman, but I am not. I wish I were a grain of sand to give it to the desert, but I am not. I wish I were a loaf of bread to give it to hungry people, but I am not. I wish I were a boat to transport people to the shore, but I am not. I wish I were a doctor to give medicine to the needy, but I am not. I wish I were a dream to give it to a poor dreamer, but I am not. I wish I were a piece of cloth to cover the poor boy's body, but I am not. I wish I were sugar to give it to a tea drinker, but I am not. I wish I were a sparrow to sing for a sad girl, but I am not. I wish I were a star to give relief to the tired, but I am not.
