I Wish..But


I don’t have many wishes

Or so I think

But, the few I have

Are a bit too big

reflections

I don’t want to have a mausoleum

Built in my name

But, I want to stay in a heart

That forever whispers my name

I don’t have many wishes

Or so I think

But, the few I have

Are a bit too big

I don’t want to have 

Flowers on my grave

But, I want to be the thought

That never leaves someone’s mind

I don’t want to be a legacy

For one and all

But, I want my friends to smile

When they recall the happy times

I don’t have many wishes

Or so I think

But, the few I have

Are a bit too big

I don’t want to have roads

Named after my name

But, I want the ones I once loved

But, didn’t till the end

To weep once for me

I want the ones I love

To sometimes think of me

And wish what it would be

If I could be by their side

And stare together at the sky

I don’t have many wishes

Or so I think

But, the few I have

Are a bit too big

I don’t want to be

The BEST story ever told

But, I want someone to write

How I was the smile

That could light a dark sky

Even if all of it is a lie

I once want to be immortalized

With words that can make the strongest heart cry

I don’t want to be 

The prettiest face ever seen

But, I want someone to feel

There are things deep

Things which are both seen, unseen

I want to have not just a eulogy

But so many eulogies written for me

That when I am no longer here,

God smiles and whispers in my ears,

“You will be forever missed

And yet you will stay

In too many hearts

In too many tears

And sometimes in smiles

And the haunted pain and cries

Of those who want some more time”

BUT

ALAS

I don’t have many wishes

Or so I think

But, the few I have

Are a bit too big

So, I DREAM

In my SLEEP

Of all those things

That will FOREVER be a D.R.E.A.M.
