What She Wished For
Grateful for all the people around her
yet still missing her true love.
They bring the cake with dozens of lit candles on top
and they sing the usual song.
She closes her eyes and wishes with all her might.
She blows out the candles as they applaud.
What did she wish for? For him to be there
so she can hear his voice
make new memories with him?
To look into his eyes and embrace and for
them to never be apart again?
No, although she would want that very much,
what she wished for was his happiness.
She wished for his safety and that he’d never
grow weary. She wished that he’d stay healthy
and that he’ll always have strength and prosperity.
