In the Wake of a Wish


In the Wake of a Wish


Maybe we can only

imagine ..

In the wake of a wish

and now wonder ..

But slowly,

just how good we

might once have been ..

          Much depended on the hand I was delt - not a good 'un, but I played it to the full....didn't fold unless left with little choice and there were moments when I could've made a better call but overall never went bust.
          Got me contemplating, reminiscing again, Neville......

          • Neville

            I agree and understand precisely .. and would be a liar if I said otherwise .. and whilst I may be a lot of things, I am proud of my integrity ..

            • Doggerel Dave

              Going to add "and whilst I......" to my confession above. Thanks.

              A wonderful metaphor at many levels. Every once in a while such a metaphor comes to mind and this is one. Nicely done Neville

              • Christina8

                I have wondered that same thing....I think "what might have been" is a thought on many peoples minds from time to time. Great write!

                • Neville

                  Thank you Christina8 I am sure that most do .. Neville

                  We are back to the "What if...." scenario once more Neville.


                  • Neville

                    How cool is that .. Cheers GF60

                    The wish is such that our wonderment is true.

                    • Neville

                      It can appear to happen that way .. Bless you sir O .. Neville

                        I love the title, it applies both personally and collectively to so many things. Much of life hangs on a wish, "if only". Your introspective nature truly shines through these days, and it's wonderful.

                        • Neville

                          how very kind of you Bella and how very much appreciated you are too and truly .. Neville

                          I so relate, cherished Poet
                          How many have inked their regrets
                          On those clouds of hope
                          Wishing their heart's may be heard
                          By those they miss the most..
                          (I really like the simple delivery
                          as the content and subject
                          Is already so heavy, your subtlety
                          At its refined best)
                          thank you! Hyung

                          • Neville

                            .. I am well n truly made up brother M .. N
