    dotsWish Upon A Stardots

    The Church of God Daily Bible Study - www.keyway.ca

    I wish it were a warm, sunny day with the waves crashing along the shore over my feet
    I wish my son and I could be at Stonehenge at the Summer Solstice
    I wish coffee ice cream wasn’t fattening
    I wish my son could have stayed 10 years old forever
    I wish it were OK that I was pregnant when I got married
    I wish I could immortalize the love I see in my dog’s eyes
    I wish my brother didn’t revel in doing Dad’s dirty work to me
    I wish I lived a charmed life too
    I wish my sister would get over herself
    And quit acting like we all owe her something
    Because the poor little thing was supposedly so neglected
    I wish I could have been a stay-at-home mom
    I wish my other sister had never said
    With her arm around our mother, on the night she got engaged
    While she looked me straight in the eye
    “See Mom, I’m going to get married first and then get pregnant.”
    I wish I were Shelby’s godmother
    I wish I could forgive and forget
    I wish I could meet Tom Welling
    Even though I’m probably old enough to be his mother
    And Michael Rosenbaum, John Glover and Jensen Ackles
    And who can resist John Schneider?
    I overdose on Smallville every time I watch it
    Because I just don’t know who to look at first
    I wish I could loose 40 pounds and 20 years and meet Hayden Christensen
    And that his hair would be nice and long at the time
    I wish it were a crisp Autumn day with leaf piles to jump into
    I wish I also had a daughter
    I wish I didn’t know how it felt
    To sit in a deserted baseball park at 14
    Waiting for the boy I was crazy about
    Who asked me to meet him there
    And then never showed up
    I wish there was no such thing as a pedestal to put people on
    I wish I could knock my brother off it
    With a big rock
    I wish everyone knew the truth about him
    I wish I could bottle the smell of a camp fire on a cold winter’s night
    I wish Michael J. Fox didn’t have Parkinson’s
    I wish I could drink champagne
    I wish I lived in a house near the ocean
    And could drink my morning coffee walking along the shore
    I wish I were more like Goldie Hawn in “Protocol”
    And that I was the one living with Kurt Russell
    I wish cats didn’t make me sneeze
    I wish it were the days of Renoir
    And it was considered beautiful to look like the women in
    Renoir’s Nude, A Seated Bather, Blonde Nude, Bather in the Landscape
    Because then I would be considered beautiful just as I am
    I wish I had the substance, beauty and grace of Jennifer Aniston
    I wish I could slow dance with Steve Burton and it would end in a kiss
    I wish I was half the lyricist and poet of Rob Thomas, Johnny Reznick, Chris Robinson, Chester Bonnington, Mike Shinoda, Aaron Lewis
    And, of course, the Queen: Stevie Nicks
    I wish I could stop myself from working every day to forgive my family
    Even the two I hate the most
    Maybe those two are why I avoid men like the plague
    I wish I could fathom how effortless it is for my father to lose his daughter
    He really doesn’t care that I’m not a part of his life anymore
    I wish a man could love me like my son does
    And the way my dog does
    And the way Gramma did…unconditionally
    However their love is enough to overflow all my heart can hold
    I wish it didn’t hurt to watch “Meet the Parents”
    Because Robert deNiro looks so much like my father in that movie
    That I can’t watch it anymore
    I wish forgiveness was a destination instead of a journey
    I wish I had a Mrs. Doubtfire in my life to lean on
    I wish I had footage of when I fell down the stairs
    Because even though it hurt, that was really pretty funny
    And as it turned out, it was OK
    Because “it’s only a flesh wound”
    I wish I could capture the thrill
    Of speeding down a steep snowy hill on a sled
    I wish Saturn hung closer in our sky
    I wish I could ride a comet
    I wish the nearest star, besides our sun, wasn’t quite so far away
    I wish I never caused those tears in my son’s eyes

      This was very emotional. You took me through an emotional wave. I think that it was good. I'm guessing that was a let out of all your feelings. Venting kind of thing. I like how everything you said started with I wish. Good job and I hope that you manage to sort life out to your happiness, though I'm sure that you are quite satisfied with your day to day life as it is, if tose are the only things that bother you. Keep writing.
