week 223 ~ if I were there I’d kiss you

me.223

if I were there I’d kiss you
right on the top of your head
banish pain and hug you too
so tight there I’m not instead

 right on the top of your head
I’ll fasten my favorite dreams
so tight there I’m not instead
here such a long way it seems

 I’ll fasten my favorite dreams
just a voice on the wire
here such a long way it seems
hoping fate is a liar

just a voice on the wire
those hard words I cannot change
hoping fate is a liar
praying time will rearrange

 those hard words I cannot change
wrap up everything that’s bad
praying time will rearrange
fix the truths that make you sad

wrap up everything that’s bad
banish pain and hug you too
fix the truths that make you sad
if I were there I’d kiss you

    • Thanks Charles! I actually wrote this for my daughter who is going through a tough time. But realized later it applies to Mom as well, or anyone far away who you wish you could fix things for.

  2. To fasten with a kiss. Lovely!
    This for your mom?
    Oh! Never mind, just saw your response to Charles.

    • Yes, daughter, mom– those we wish we could allow their hopes.
