A Wish

I threw a penny into a wishing well;
a familiar wish that
I should not tell -
but,
I wished for your eyes
to dance with my heart.
I wished that we would never,
ever
be torn apart.
Some say a wish
should not be told,
but I didn’t wish for silver.
I didn’t wish for gold.
I wished for your love,
simple,
but true.
I wished for your soul…
I wished for you.
