I Wish

Poet: Julie Hebert, 2012

I wish I may, I wish I might,
For something good to come in sight.
I wish to see my shinning star,
And maybe it will come tonight.

And with that star I plan to wish,
For all I love to come to me.
My hopes and dreams I will soon see,
All that's needed is to wish for thee.

This is how I use to think,
Before I realized wishing is like a wink.
When you wink you hope to show,
But never really are able to know.

Wishing won't make your dreams come true,
That is only something you can do.
If you want something to happen,
It's you who'll have to do the snapping.

So if you're going to make a wish,
On a night a star will fish.
Make a wish for strength and courage,
At least this will be something to encourage.

Wishing is all fine and dandy,
As long as you don't make it handy.
Wishing is for you to dream,
If you want success, you're better to scheme.

The Oceans Shore

By Cookie

As I walk along the oceans shore
The feeling of peace, longing for more
As I sit upon soft wet sand
The gentle waves, touch my hand
This Aura of wonder and tranquility
Stretching as far as my eyes can see
Watching the reflections move with the flow.

Feeling the comfort, of its inner glow
Oh how I wish, this feeling would stay
As I know I must walk away
Wish I could leave all the hurt, pain and tears
Behind me along, with all my fears
Wouldn't it be nice, if we could leave on that shore
Feelings that keep in our hearts, ever more
If I wrote them in the sand, would they be swept away?

By the waves crashing in, Gone on their way
Leaving us free, of DOUBTS and DESPAIR
The ocean will handle them, then we won't care
The ocean can be such a beautiful place
As our minds wonder in and out of space.

I think that I already know
We reap whatever we did sow
I will keep looking, forever more
But not what I wrote,on that OCEANS SHORE.
