Reach For Wishes - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

If I did not do this,
I'd be doing that and unhappy!
Although befriended I would be.
To share my daily agonies.
To fit within accepted limitations.
With social invitations,
To discuss our frustrations.
And hesitating to reach for wishes!

If I did not do this,
I'd be doing that and unhappy!
Although befriended I would be.
To share my daily agonies.
To fit within accepted limitations.
With social invitations,
To discuss our frustrations.
And hesitating to reach for wishes!

And for time to make them happen,
As those wishes that can happen pass!
Each day.
Each day.
Each day our wishes we let drift away,
Out of sight and reach!
