I Wish

I wish that I could be the one
who catches all your tears
the one who's there to chase away
your shadows with your fears.

The one that's always there for you
whatever time of day
always there to hold you hand
and tell you it's ok.

I wish that I could be the one
to put a smile on your face
but it seems that life has other plans
for I can not fill that space.

    Enjoyed the rhythm and rhyme of this poem. The last line is a wonderful twist, and way to end the write. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0052U4O5U
