Wishes

I haven't posted for a while; I've had some things going on. I've kept on writing, though. Here's my latest poem:



Wishes


I wish

You remembered

I wish

You'd stop forgetting

I wish

I was still the grandchild and not the adult

I wish

You could tell me stories again

I wish

You were still here with me all the time

I wish

I wasn't bitter

I wish

Things were the way I remember

I wish

I wasn't afraid for what's next

I wish

I didn't fear for my mother

I wish

I wasn't afraid for myself

I wish

I wasn't worried for my daughters

I wish

You didn't remember what happened to your mother

I wish

Your granddaughters wouldn't have to see this

I wish

It didn't hurt so much

I wish

I wish I didn't miss you so badly

I wish

I wouldn't cry

I wish

You wouldn't either

I wish

You remembered

I wish

I wish.
