I wish I had within me
Where I often could release
The heat of summers' sunshine
To escape Decembers' freeze.

A space - beside my bones
Where I could taste the feel of warm
And conjure up a bright sky
To replace a snowy storm.

I wish I lived year round
And had an ocean as my view;
Where sun shone on the waves
And skies were almost always blue.

I wish I had within me -
Constant as the rising moon
A summer - quite invincible
To mimic days of June.

I wish I could awaken
By the warm and sandy shore;
The sound of gentle waves
I'd hear outside my cottage door.

I wish that winter-time
Was where I'd visit, here and there.
A day or two vacation -
Than head back to warmer air.

And if my bones and joints
Could scream out how they really feel -
You'd hear them beg for warmer days
And sun to make them heal.

So for now, I wish, within me
I could choose, and I'd belong
To just one season for my soul
And summer all year long.
