My Wishes

My Wishes short poem

Uploaded by Delores Noal


Many times I have wished for a place just for me
Where it was quiet and peaceful,somewhere I could be

I hoped for days when I wouldn’t have to do the dishes
Or clean house or do laundry were my wishes

Why do I always have to work I would think
While scrubbing the tub or the bathroom sink

Can’t those kids stop fighting and just be quiet
Does life always have to be such a riot

Now they are all grown,out there on their own
Why do I feel so all alone

There’s no one here to bother me
It’s quiet and I am totally free

To do all the things I wanted so bad
But I would rather have them back than to feel so sad

There is no one here for me to hold or kiss goodnight
Now that I have what I wished for,it doesn’t feel right.

My Pearl of Inestimable Value Out from its obscurity in this Silence Dawn, emerged an invisible Cruelty, gabbed in terminal robe; Stealthily descended upon this blissful abode: the habitation of ‘My Pearl of Inestimable Value’ With its fangs snarling in

I am terribly shocked and remorseful My sister, can’t help than weeping at your ill-fate Transcending self to a passive onlooker Or to the role of an unmindful passenger With torn heart, tied hands, and bleeding eyes All finding acutely

My heart loves you Was it not some time ago, My heart was like a rock? An impenetrable fortress, With steep cliffs at its side, A distance land, Far away, From where no ordinary soul, Would dare to reside? I
