Poems and Prose: Wishful thinking

Wishful thinking

I wish there was a way I could cheer you up

I wish I could empty out your sorrow; use my love to fill your cup

I wish there were more hours in a day

Or that I had a way to convince you to stay

I wish this bed didn’t feel so big; that this house didn’t feel so empty

Or that I didn’t let my insecurities tempt me

I wish I had been stronger…

I wish that you had held out hope for a little longer

But the thing about wishes, they are often unfulfilled

Those 2.5 kids; the white picket fence around the house up on the hill

When wishes meet reality, the clash can be shattering to the soul

Take what once fertile ground and leave a gaping hole

Yet a life without wishes seems so bizarre 

What else would you do you gaze up at the stars??

I wish this wasn’t the end, i wish it was only the start

I wish I could GPS the way to back to your heart

I wish the clouds would spread, and the sun would shine down

To remove the darkness in my body, my spirit and my mind now

I wish I didn’t have this feeling, I wish I was numb

I wish you will forgive me for all the wrong things that i have done

I wish there was a way for me to let you know

I wish…. I never had to let you go
