I Only Wish

I only wish

I never held my heart

so close to these tears

so far from the start

 

I only wait

for a soul to sing for mine

Too far from alright

I’m a poor substitute

for a strength I cannot find

 

I only wander

my love so far and wide

taking rest between claps of thunder

weary in this rain that stills, yet won’t subside

 

I only long

for a braver heart to possess

not so defeated by those sadder songs

and for another to find peace—

also passion where I exist…
