I wish, even when something can be done
I wish because I feel stuck and unsung

I wish, even though I have lots
I wish because I feel loss, and lost

I wish, even after moments of feeling glad
I wish because I feel enormously sad

I wish, even though the sun just shone
I wish because I feel cold and alone

I wish I’d been a better friend throughout
I wish I could reach out, through doubt

I wish I wasn’t scared of rejection
I wish I didn’t thrive on connection

I wish I could be who I used to be
I wish my resting smile would return to me

I wish to the stars, for wishes that tall
Wishing for the days when I had it all
