Wish

You came too quickly, when you passed this way.

My wish, a wish to well have known you more;

Hardened yokes of life made you bend and sway.

These words, some kind some not, I wished to say,

Trapped musings and praises within this core.

You came too quickly, when you passed this way.

Had I known you then, as I know this day,

I would speak loud, kind words, soft, unkind lore.

Hardened yokes of life made you bend and sway.

These words, my words, forever now at bay

Would break as secret waves upon this shore;

You came too quickly, when you passed this way.

Torn, torn with broken heart, to go, to stay,

To blow, to cry like wind on years of yore;

Hardened yokes of life made you bend and sway.

Spent, spent like dust of fallen leaves you lay;

A blink, a blink of life and then no more.

You came too quickly, when you passed this way;

Hardened yokes of life made you bend and sway.
