A Single Wish a poem by RestLeSsD

If I had just a single wish
I wonder what it might be.
Would I be selfish and only want
Something that was just for me?

Or would I think on it a while?
Contemplation, in deep thought.
And wish for something lasting,
Something no one has ever sought?

Would I wish for happiness,
For lasting love that sings?
Or simply something from a dream?
Like soaring on dragonfly wings.

If you had just a single wish
Do you wonder what might transpire
In the granting of that single wish
Would it be a fulfillment of your desire?

I guess we will never know for sure.
Wishes are like imagined butterflies.
They flutter by in just an instant
Sounding as soft as a child’s sighs. . .

This Mortal Coil ~ A Single Wish

I am thankful for music and art and poetry and the fact that I can think of what I would wish for and it not be something like. . a place to sleep tonight or where my next meal will come from. I am thankful for what I’ve got. .
