A Hope, a Dream, a Wish

Love and acceptance that's unconditional and never shuns

As refreshing as a desert oasis waiting to be fell into

More chaste and pure than a thousand pious nuns

A soothing balm that envelopes and heals anew

With the warmth and glow of a million suns

A paradise nothing can compare to


An embrace that radiates safety and security

Like warm hearth against winters bitter bite

Comforting like a patchwork quilt, inviting and cozy

Soft and familiar like the teddy bear snuggled tight

As protective as the sheltered cove against the stormy sea

A reassurance that everything will be alright


Wishing that these hopes and dreams will coalesce;

Into the piece, that completes the puzzle that is me

A divine and soul-igniting experience

Like the many hues sunset over the sea

Love so captivatingly pure and radiantly intense;

The only description cosmically beautiful and heavenly


Alas, it is only a hope, a dream, a wish
