The Wish

If there is a heaven,

I do not know,

My mind does not allow

For doubt to settle,

And nest in the fearful tides,

Throughout the reigns of time.

I am a man, woman and child,

Known to the world,

Like a fragile stone,

That walks along this feeble life,

And summons vulnerability

With a tenacious heart.

I do not belong to heaven or hell,

My soul is mine to own,

Werther it

Trembles like a river song,

Or captures the light

Of invisible hope.

My wandering spirit,

Even though it has been torn,

And left to die,

It does know how to love,

Exceeding the limitations

Of one's mind.

Beyond the simple realms

Of this tainted reality,

I close my eyes and dream,

Wishing that love is all

That ever was,

Living in eternity.
