Wishes

wishes
I never thought my wishes would ever come true
as I wished upon a different star every night
only to be returned to me in uninvited rain

One drop after another became deep scars I wear
soaking in the tears of anguish falling down
in a pool of sorrow laced with pain

Then something happend within the thick fog of rain
as it stops to reveal the newly open sky of stars
against the peaceful backdrop of the ebony ocean sky

Resting raindrops lay on leaves illuminated
by the full moons gaze and the fresh smell
of rain still lofts after the clouds stopped its’ cry

Sad thoughts wane away when watching the beauty
of this light return them to the darkness from
which they came and I bathe in a love I never knew

the weight of my wishes turn to mist when the
rising sun in my heart lifts them far into
the sky like the morning dew

There is no pain no sorrow no yearning for better days
for they have left no trace and as I become thankful
in this moment a wish was finally granted

A rainbow reveals itself during the sunrise of dawn but
this time the tears that fell are those of joy as the
sun lays a kiss on my heart firmly planted

So I guess wishes really do come true….

The Sunset Before The Fall

As the summer fades away into the sunset
I stand under the autumn trees waiting for the fall
Memories made while others will be found again in nostalgia
I wish I could hold on and take them all

New colors seen under peerless sunsets
My mind taken to places far away I never knew it could go
I can still hear the ocean even when I fall asleep
As I begin to wonder if my happiness has reached the plateau

Now I sleep peacefully under a new sunset
Made with the kaleidoscope of all my memories
I found a peace I was never looking for
As it turned out it revealed an all new hidden me

The Airplane Window

Looking through the airplane window
I become nostalgic about some of
the best days of my life
that have passed

The pink and orange hues of the sunset
gives a fitting end to my journey
of the days I spent looking out
sitting on the grass

The things I saw and felt can only be
described as waking up from the
most beautiful dream and
realizing your still
in it

An awakening light rose up in me from
the very deepest of oceans within
to quench the thirst of my
yearning spirit

I didn’t know I was lost until I found
myself again basking in joy and
laughter of such I have not
felt in quite some time

I found myself thinking of poetic verses
that must have come from my soul and
entered my awakened mind

I will never forget the time spent as I
immortalize the memories onto my
heart so I can always see them
whether I am asleep or awake

I continue to stare out the window after
the memories go to sleep as I look
forward to more memories
together next time we
will make
