I wish

Sun, 11/04/2012 - 09:16 -- fatima

I wish life was easier
I wish dads didn’t die
I wish babies didn’t cry
I wish the winter weather
Wasn’t so anti-tender
I wish love was easy
And hate hard
I wish people weren’t so corny
And life not so hard
But where would the joy be
There is no triumph without death and despair
There is no miracle
Without that moment
Where the baby stops crying and
Smiles at your funny face
There is no anticipation for summer days
Without the indifference of winter ones
And if love were easy
Then there would be no chase
