Poem of Wishing

Wishing She Was Here

I tossed a coin
Into the drink
Then, saw it splash
And watched it sink

To make a wish
I hope comes true
Deep in my heart
– I dream of you

Forgive me, please
I carry on
It happens all the time

These thoughts of you
Warming my day
My love flows into rhyme

I’ll blow a kiss
Across the sea
Wrapped with a bow
To you, from me

Until we meet
Please hold it near
And know that I
wish you were here

          Most welcome, Michele. Yes, I recall that you grow your own, having read your wonderful post, Feeling the Squeeze, and then offering my Poem in Response. I’d love a glass, if you have enough lemons to spare! 😁 Thank you. 🤗

            haha Thanks for the links. Very nice. I just tossed a bag, that turned mushy. 😞 I gave away many and was still left with more than my share. 🍋🍋🍋
