"I hope the Pacific is as blue as it has been in my dreams. I hope."
-- The Shawshank Redemption

-

I hope you dream first before you try,
I hope you sink first before you fly.

I hope the ocean is as blue as you think,
I hope the stars glow so bright they seem
almost synthetic.

I hope and I'll wish and we'll send you the
best but you know maybe's only a guess and
it'll always be the only thing I can give.

-

A scene so white you think you've been in
paradise, words slanted so closely that you
think so poorly.

A light that bends across the sky, a wish
that blows closely by. Eyelashes flutter for
better beginnings and you are spinning.

A world lit by a single light - you are only okay
for tonight. The monsters won't hurt you if
you stay close but by tomorrow I'll just be
another ghost.

-

I hope it doesn't hurt as much as you say,
I hope you'll be okay at least for today.

I hope you stay alive for the whole thing,
I hope you wake up with your heart attached
to the seams.

I hope and I'll wish and we'll send you the
best but you know maybe's only a guess and
it'll always be the only thing I can give.
