Wishes For A Love Untold - Poem by Ruth warren
In my world where wishes and dreams never come
true, alone my heart will be, only wishing for you.
Walked many miles on the lonely dirt roads, serenity
is my only friend, as it is to you my wishes are told.
I whisper them upon the wings of the butterflies,
I send them upon the winds from the Southern sky.
Upon deaf ear thay do land, but time and again,
my wishes are still at your command.
My heart sways with the willows so fair as their
shadows cast my wishes through the scented air.
I walk by the stream and throw my wishes in, to
float upon the leaves as the leave my sight,
tumbling over rocks in the West bend.
I rest beneath the old oak tree, with pen in
hand, I write my love for thee. My sun kissed
tears begin to dance with the ink, flowing like a
river as they fall to the ground and within the
moss they sink.
Crumpled papers scattered about beneath the
trees, along with the wishes, the wishes
I have made for thee. Long walk back upon
that dusty road, leaving behind me, the wishes,
and the love for you, the love still untold.
