The Wish

I thought I would do another amalgamation, but give it a name this time. After I took this photo, I thought about the song Airplanes by B.o.B. and Hayley Williams. So I felt this poem would go well with the two of them.

The Wish

I see an ant and wish
I wish I were a bug
A bug to float where I want
To be ignored by all

~*~

I see a bee and wish
I wish I were a bee
To be ruled by a queen
And to be watched by many

~*~

I see a flower and wish
I wish I were a flower
To sit and grow and look fine
To be loved by all

~*~

I see a bird and wish
I wish I were an eagle
To soar to heights I’ve never been
To be watched and loved by many

~*~

I see a fish and wish
I wish I were a whale
To be the largest mammal and swim
To be held in awe by all

~*~

I see a cat and wish
I wish I were a feline
Going were I want and sleeping
Being loved by all who’s lap I sit

~*~

I see a dog and wish
I wish I were a dog
To run and run and run and flop
To be adored and stroked by many

~*~

I see a child and wish
I wish I were a child again
To play and not have a single care
To be loved by many

~*~

I see an adult and wish
I wish for many things
I wish for love, I wish for peace
I know of some who do love me.

~*~

I know I am an adult
I have some friends to love
But many times I look at them
And wish I could have a wish .. just for them
