Firelight

Star light

Star bright

I wish I may 

I wish I might

have this wish I wish tonight.

Staring at the skies above

reminded

how vast

how so large

the universe we live in

really is.

My eyes flit from star to star

as I wonder

which it is

that will grant

my wish?

I know the truth

I know wishes will not come true

from the cold white radiance

shining above.

I care not.

I wrap the night

a dark cloak around me

lost in the mysticism

of the firelight.

I am a single hard working mom in her 40's. I have always written poetry and I love words. I live with depression and its ups downs. This is a space where I can create and write all that I need to.
