Wish #AugustMoon13

If you had one wish – guaranteed to be fulfilled by the end of 2013 – what would it be?

This prompt reminded me of a poem I wrote a little while ago . . . . .


I wish
 
to walk hand in hand
to hear the roar of the sea
 
I wish
 
to feel the wet sand
to feel how it used to be
 
I wish
 
to feel salt air on my face
to feel the waters pull
 
I wish
 
to feel your soft embrace
to hear the cries of a gull
 
I wish
 
that for just one minute
you could be here with me
 
I wish
 
life wasn't empty without you in it
but I guess it wasn't meant to be
 
 

So . . . . . if anything was possible, I would wish to see my dad again.
 
Linking up with August Moon

  6. Beautiful low POV image, and lovely poem. I don't usually pay attention to wishes and dreams for future, but I do wish and hope my sweet cat can stay healthy for at least the rest of this year. She's doing OK the last couple weeks.

  11. Beautiful and really caught me off-guard at the end as my father's birthday is the end of August. What a lovely wish to see either of my parents again.

  12. Awe - sweet poem. You are lucky you have love like that in your heart - not everyone has a dad like that.
