Wishing Well - Poem by AHO Speaks

Wishing Well

I wished for a rainbow without the stormy sea
I wished for a snowman on good old Cudjoe key.

I wished for a first love with its unique feeling
I wished for an age which was revealing.

I wished for a wonderful career and a long history of health
I wished for intimacy and would sacrifice wealth.

I wished for long hours of work in a meaningful endeavor
I wished each day not to use the word never.

I wished for truth, justice with fairness and kindness as seeds
I wished for the relationship of man to be based on good deeds.

I wished for the cruel and unjust be removed as naught
I wished for blissful true love as an ultimate goal to be sought.

I wished to avoid lost love and the tears
I wished for a productive future without binding years.

I wished all my wishes come true from the first to the last
I wished they all be renewed as I spent them in the past.
