A wish in wandering



I walk the path along the waterfront

Just as I have each time this day

A searcher seeking some solace

In this place and time,

Sunlight beating down on me

With gilded light

I have no right to enjoy,

Feeling the ache of emptiness

I should not feel,

Shaping a wish in my head

I have no right to wish for,

And my feet finding the groove

I have made in this life of mine

Following this track

This way of thinking

Unable to escape

Even when something

Worth escaping for

Appears in the sky,

And still aching for it

When I know I cannot have it,

Still knowing it is worth having

Even when I know

I donít deserve to have it.
