First Star I See Tonight
I wished upon the first star
asking for a thousand more nights of useless wishes
and a thousand silver coins
to waste on wishing wells.
I wished to see the dogwoods bloom
to breathe the scent of lilacs one more time.
I asked to fall asleep to the whippoorwill's song
hanging on until the last exultant note.
I wished to see my daughter's wedding
my son's game-winning catch
I wanted to watch my husband grow old
and see my age reflected in his eyes.
I wished that wishing was a worthwhile solution
that stars had the power to stop death.
I wished that I could live for a thousand more nights
to wish on the first star I see.
