A WISH

I WISH I COULD MAKE THE PAIN AND THE SORROW GO AWAY,

NOT MINE, BUT FOR EVERYONE !

I WISH I COULD DRY ALL THE TEARS AND MELT YOUR FEARS AWAY,

I MADE A FRIEND OF PAIN AND SORROW A VERY LONG TIME AGO,

BUT NOT BECAUSE I WANTED TO, BUT BECAUSE I HAD TO,

I WANT TO GIVE HOPE TO THE HOPELESS BUT I FEEL SO HELPLESS,

I THINK OF THE TIMES WHEN I SHOULD HAVE DIED,

WE ALL HAVE THE SAME FEELINGS, AND EVEN NUMB CAN FEEL GOOD,

I WISH I COULD BRING HAPPINESS TO THE WORLD, I WISH I COULD TAKE THE PAIN AWAY THAT YOU HAVE,

I AM JUST A MAN. I ONLY HAVE A WISH. I HAVE TRIED TO REACH OUT AND TOUCH THE WORLD, I TRIED TO REACH OUT AND TOUCH YOUR WORLD, BUT MY WISH AND I HAVE FAILED,

I THOUGHT I WAS SPECIAL, NOW I THINK WE ARE ALL SPECIAL,

I WISHED TO CHANGE THE WORLD, AND INSPIRE,

ALL MY HOPES AND WISHES ARE ONLY DUST IN THE WIND,

NO REGRETS, NO WISHES, BUT I HAVE HOPE AND FAITH IN YOU !

I HOPE THAT ONE DAY OUR PATHS WILL CROSS,

I PRAY THAT YOU FIND PEACE,

  1. 1. You actually think about the issue(s) (1a) before making the effort to verbalize your thoughts.
    2. You are clear and logical (and clearly logical) in putting them out there.
    3. You are entertaining, or you are serious (sometimes/often both), but in either case your output makes a whole lotta sense.
    Not everyone can state that (any or all) with acuity.
    I believe that you have touched many, many small worlds (a person being a world). Like teaching, often you never know how many. Sometimes, though, if you’re lucky, you might catch a glimpse, a gift in itself.
