I wish - poem for my granddaughter

I wish I could look at a flower through your eyes and discover why you are so fascinated by it. I wonder why your eyes glisten when you look at the stars, and why you smile at the moon. I wish I could find out what triggers you to jump and skip, or giggle with glee and I strain my ears to hear the silent melody which causes you to break out in song. I wish I could embrace someone so firmly as you do when you jump up to greet me. I wish I were like you when I was a child.

Hi David, I feel this poem was altered by another poet, elsewhere. The imagery equals, the only differences are the added lines and the twisting of metaphors. I enjoyed the imagery here.... LINDA

They say we re-live out lives vicariously through our children. So now you are experiencing life again. Lovely observations. SuZ
