Wishful Thinking/Silly Nonsense - Poem by Jessica Lindsey

i wish i was a little girl
still tripping on my laces
or sprawled across the floor with crayons
coloring silly faces.
i wish i was still small enough
to sit on daddy's knee
or up on his shoulder
when i was too short to see.
i wish i still cried
over things like broken toys
instead of broken hearts
over things like stupid boys.
i wish it still felt
like the summer had no end
instead of flying past
before i even know what happend.
i wish my purple sock
still matched perfect with my red
and i still wore pink footsie pajamas
everynight to bed.
but wishing wont bring back
the things that i had
so i'll take the sweet with the sour
and the good with the bad.
and i'll look for the rainbows
that mark the storms end
and go diving into puddles
with you, my special friend.
