Thousand candles lit in prayer, burning brightly, melting wicks
A hundred letters on butterfly's wings; fluttering in a shaft of sunlight
Colorful balloons floating high up the blue horizon, up to the golden gates of heaven
Carrying a hope, a dream, a wish…
I wish for love everlasting
Not a rose that withers and slowly dies away
Survives against the solemn dictates of time and the passing of eternity
For true love has no real ending.
I wish for life satisfying
Though thorns and mountains get in my way
That as I fall, stand I still did
Deem it ephemeral, see it complete.
I wish to see the beauty, the magnificent miracle wrought
Of nature and its million special gifts
Dewy leaves, scented petals, wispy skies, blooming flowers
Simple things, yet so endearing
Ears to hear every tiny little sound, compensate for my lack
Feel rage and anger, joy and happiness; emotion to assure me I am living
Blessings escried in a deep pool of sorrow, a lake with no reflections
All those blank pages, clothed in opulence…
Ripples on the water's clear surface.
