A Wish

A Wish


I looked for love
It hides in shadows
Of broken promises
And forgotten yesterdays.
I welcomed your eyes
That bade me stay
In a wish
That was a lifetime away.
The only constant is the sea
Full of dreams of never be
Waves that crash upon a soul
On the sands of time
That made me whole.

 Hopeful wishes of your helpless heart
 Wishes that tear your suffering mind apart

 Wishes to hold what you want to embrace
 Wishes to love her and kiss her lovely face

Splashing  waves crash upon the lonely shore
 Wanting her to love you forever and more

 What can I say I was inspired!! (( Smilessss
 Hugs ~ She Whispers

Beautiful. Man does not live by wishes alone. And woman, always prepares for change.
