A Broken Wish

There is one, this little wish,

You wished for , all your life.

From the time you gained senses.

You kept following it just right.

That small little wish,

That was your life.

And one day to realise,

It is never to be.

Now leaves a crater

never to be filled.

All the trophies ,

All the fame,

All the accolades,

Nothing lightens you up ever.

And then one day,

In your wish unfulfilled

You found a strength and a will.

Determined no one ever

Bears the pain for life

To carry the burdens of broken wish so dear to life.

In every dear wish you helped fulfill

You saw a part of you live fulfilled.

Not all of us reach our dear litlle wish

For their wishes will live through many lives fulfilled .
