Unremembering

I wish I had held
to moments more dearly ~
to songs that were played
on the breath of a sigh.
I wish I had watched
as wonder unraveled
and slept when it ended ~
a lifetime passed by.

I wish I had prayed
and waited the blessings ~
as sure in their coming
my delight when they came.
I wish I had slept
long past your leaving ~
and woke to a morning
where love still remained.

I wish I had loved
when the words
were still tender ~
their silence remembered
a place long ago.
I wish I had listened ~
did you whisper forever
in rhyme before reason ~
and wanting to know.

I wish I had gone
when the going was easy ~
the reasons to linger
not much to confess.
A road that was fated ~
the way back
forgotten.
My chance for redemption
not bartered for less.

I wish I had dreamed
the real of what mattered ~
were moments pretending
just time passing through.
I wish I had held
a little while longer ~
ere time steal the memory
of wishing for you.
