Now and then it’s good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy.
“Wishes are memories coming from our future!”
― Rainer Maria Rilke
(dandelion / Julie Cook / 2015)
With eyes tightly closed,
and lips readily posed,
we blew hard for what might be. . .
There were dreams and wishes,
along with a few stolen kisses–
That’s what I longed for back then. . .
But today is much different,
With all that now distant,
As my wishes are no longer my own. . .
For health and for happiness,
along for a world without madness,
As we now find ourselves praying for what should be. . .
