I Wish

I wish I were an angel To flood your world with my light To hold, comfort and cheer you All through long lonely night I wish I were a fairy To flit about your dear heart To give it tiny squeezes When about to fall apart I wish I were a goddess Of beauty a paragon So you would gaze and wonder Thoughts of any other gone I wish I were a muse Living there inside your mind To offer inspiration When right words you need to find I wish I were a princess Blessed with luxury so fine I’d make you live in splendor If you promise to be mine I wish I were a star Sprinkling stardust down on you Guiding each and every step Make your dearest wish come true I wish I were the moon Working on your inner tides Drawing you ever closer Till in me your love abides I wish I were the sun Burning to the very core Searing you with my passion Rays touching what I adore I wish I were a flower To bloom nurtured by your care Wrap you in my loving scent Make life beautiful and fair I wish I were the wind Caressing you every way Enfolding you in my arms Seductress having my way I wish I were the rain That wets body through and through That sprinkles love droplets soft But then drums itself on you I wish I were the sea Foaming, churning ecstasy To draw you into my depth Riding waves, unleashed and free But I am just a woman I’m as simple as can be But if you give me your love All these wonders you will see Eileen Manassian Ghali Inspired in part by Shania Twain’s song: “Jealous” I love that woman…She is awesome. Wish I could see her in Vegas…She is there performing now…Such great songs…. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=en4GjDEHasI

You cover the 'wishful thinking' spectrum very well. I wrote one some time ago that runs to the other end of that spectrum.... You should like "If I Had Three Wishes"..... You write some powerful stuff, darlin'.... Jake

Thanks, Anne Lise....I've always been an idealist....it isn't easy. I think it best to become a realist... ;) But my poetry can still be in the real of dreams and ideals...Thanks for the visit, my dear...

There is no such thing as just a woman, a woman is the most magical and powerful being on the planet. This was beautiful! I responded to your visit from yesterday, I had a really busy day so not much time for soup yesterday.

I think if Shania were to read this she'd sing, 'This don't impressa me much, it impresses me hugely' lol. You've hit the 'Ka Ching' with this write my little Desert Orchid. Then again, we should be careful what we wish for lol. Take care, Richard
