Three Wishes

Written by: Jeralynn Clark

Three Wishes

Wishes are longings
Yearnings deep within
Silent hopes and dreams
Often scattered by a wind.

My journey along this road
Many stumbles on a path
A scar left on a heart
I would surely wish it back.

A word unkindly spoken
A thought so mean as death
Pain as deep as mine
I would wish back all my breath.

Wisdom of this age
Often taught by our mistakes
I would give it to me then
Before I had to wish it back.
