I held a pebble in my hand and threw it to the ocean.
I sent a wish along with it, so very softly spoken.
Some days I wish for answers, other days for fewer questions.
There’s so much spinning in my head, too many thoughts to mention.

I wished the time would come again when life could just be simple,
Where like a child, my biggest woe could be a freckle or a dimple.
But now it seems that life’s unwound in coils around my tired feet.
It always tries to trip me up, intent to make me feel defeat.

Just as I reach decisions, they just disappear like wispy clouds,
And so I go back to the start and try to navigate out loud.
There’s no-one who can light my way or even knows which path I’m on,
And just as it becomes quite clear, the very next moment, it’s gone.

I guess I’m looking for some sign that shows me where to take a step
That’s hopefully in some straight line, not round in circles in my head.
Some days I don’t know what to ask or how to move or what to do,
Some days it’s hard to reconcile whether the things I know are true.

I held a pebble in my hand and threw it to the ocean.
I sent a wish along with it, so very softly spoken.
Some days I wish for answers, other days for fewer questions.
Some days I just need to be still to find my own reflection.

His body glistens blue green hues,

His wings like rainbows shine.

His strength it cannot be compared,

As here and there he flies.

 

He carries words within his grasp,

A message true and clear.

The reason that he’s come to be,

Why fate has brought him here.

 

To some he’s just a dragonfly,

A life so short and sweet.

To others he’s the strength they need,

In the journey they complete.

 

So when you see a dragonfly,

Look closely just to see,

And if he smiles as he flies past,

It may just well be me.

Though I am broken, tired and worn and sickness forms the darkest cloud,
I’ve found a star to wish upon, and dare to wish my wish out loud.

Though slower now than I once was, I found the strength to climb this Tree
And felt the heart within me leap to see that star shine down to me.

It’s cold up here – an eerie breeze blows through the branches without leaves.
It’s been some time since I could climb, but I’ve found what I’ve come to see.

A wishing star set high up in the velvet cloak of darkest sky
Is sparkling down, offering one wish, and giving me the strength to try.

I muster all the strength I can, all energy towards one end
Then find that it’s already true, my only wish – to be your friend.

Though I am weak, I will draw strength from words written high in this Tree
And I will draw from the deep well of words that you’ve written for me.

You know I’d spare you if I could just find a way to set you free,
But you’re the truest, kindest friend, and that’s not what you’d want from me.

So meet me here, high in this Tree, please someday soon with your widest smile.
The Grown Up in me needs to move aside and make way for the Child.

Let’s sit and talk and laugh and play as though our youth can have no end.
I wish for nothing more and nothing less than just to be your friend.
