I wish

Click here to hear the poet read his words:

I wish

I wish I could swim like a dolphin can swim
As Bowie once said in a song
If I could sing like Pavarotti could sing
Maybe my world would not be quite so wrong

I wish I could fly like an eagle can fly
I wish I could dance like Astaire
If I could paint like Picasso could paint
Maybe my life would contain less despair

I wish I could write poems like Rabbie could write
Or create stories like Steinbeck and Kafka
If I could write plays like Will put on stage
Maybe my ears would still hear the laughter

I wish I could love like we used to love
I wish we were that way again
If I could hold you for just one last time
Maybe my heart would stop feeling such pain

About AnElephantCant

An artist/writer/poet combination whose blogs reflect an approach to life that celebrates nature and takes a tongue-in-cheek view of most issues. So you get rhymes and doodles, photographs and comment. Irreverent and irrelevant. Occasionally funny, sometimes serious, mostly pointless. https://anelephantcant.me/
