How I wish How I wish By Virginia Close How I wish I could hold your hands; To go to places beyond my mind. To the world where you and I Can kiss and embrace without halt. In your universe, I could not go as of now; In your dreams I could not even come. But that hinders not my love; Nor prohibits my heart to stop my devotion to you. Ceasing not I to recall the happy moments with you; For heaven above hails my yearning for you. With no denial you are now faraway; Not by distance of land and not by the deepest sea. Your body and soul is now with someone else; It is painful and not just, but who am I not to comply. The love given I to my dear sweetheart may not come back; Regret not I but thankful that you were once mine. I will never permit my soul to wonder; Thus, yonder without destination to go. No obstruction could standstill that my spirit could not break; To reach your heart and continue my quest. Even if the fluorite may no longer glow in the dark; And the many facets of diamond loses its sparks. Your irresistible charm that melts my heart; I will forever pray and asked God — for you to befall on my lap.
