To have the time, with each new day, for living
to watch the sunrise, time for play, for giving.
To look inside and see your best, and use it
and disregard what doubts suggest– refuse it!
To have the strength to dream, but see them merely
as a way to see reality more clearly.
To take the time to bare your feet and wander
through grasses wet and sweet with time to squander.
To spend some time alone, to get to know ‘you’
to play and sing with awe-struck crowds before you.
To have the hopes, with each good-night, that tease you
to morning’s light, with wondrous things that please you.
And most of all, I wish for you, that soft and gentle kiss
that surely awaits, and contemplates, your return from the abyss.
