The Wish (poem)

Updated on June 18, 2017

Here was a wish she made one night

This boy to love and hold her tight

To be her hope and guiding light

To be the reason all is right

-

Who knew that wishes do come true

And with a tear he loved her too

Into her arms this boy now flew

Yet without wish what would he do

-

In love they passed both day and night

Then in a time got married too

Her heart relaxed as moments flew

And something here just wasn’t right

-

Now though he stayed forever true

Other’s arms would hold her tight

And for his love he’d leave on light

Till she felt shame what did I do

-

She tried so hard to make wrongs right

What could she do to free her light

And as she died he held her tight

Here was a wish she made one night

      Martin, what a beautiful portayal of betrayal and regret. Something we need to keep in mind with every breath we take and every selfish act we commit!

      The women considered hot by most men's standards tend to take advantage of guys who like them. I'm with Philly dreamer here. It seems like she killed herself out of guilt. Wish you were here could also mean that only when you've lost something or someone can you really appreciate their worth.

      Did she kill herself out of guilt? That last part through me off.

      This was so sad and very heartfelt. How many have missed moments as unforgiveness seemed so unreachable, then it is too late.
