I Wish

I wish, for a moment—I could vanish,
like a dream dreamt not to last,
so that ones that dream of me
would falter and wonder
where has she gone?

I wish, that I was a hummingbird 
buzzing in and out of sight,
that only observant eyes
and special hearts
can fly with

I wish I was the color
of your favorite thought,
waning and growing 
with swelling light
bent on a candid smile 

How I wish—and ever more,
that I could be just as I am
and take that little bit of sand
of what we seem to be,
and turn it into something vast—
something true, and welcome

"I wish I was the color of your favorite thought, waning and growing in swelling light bent on a candid smile..." to be vast in another's heart is to be better than a wish, its to be raw life Laura. This poem has a subtle sorrow, and its written beautifully...J.A.B.
