Of Wishes...


I wish I could spill on paper
All those thoughts I cannot tell
In one tiny little lifetime
Full of love and longing’s swell

I wish I could gather on it
All those pieces of my heart
Shattered, scattered on lost moments
In fragmented, broken art

I wish I could find the ocean
That has claimed those quiet tears
Of love’s bittersweet emotion
Shed in secret through life’s years

I wish I could show you, darling
Love's rare intangible fray
What a little leap of lifetime
Never tells me how to say

  1. You say with beauty those words that are in the heart. Even when you cannot find the words- they come to you.- "rare and tangible fray"
