One  Wish  Granted
~~~


Entranced  before  the  window
arms  outstretched ...
but  resting  on  its'  frame
The  only  sound  that  falls  to  ear
from  a  pendulums'  rhythmic  swing
~
A  gentle  flame
sends  ghostly  shadows
that  dance  to  silent  notes
Entwined  in  scents  from  fireside
inlaid  with  cherry  smoke
~
They  said  she  would  appear  this  night
as  all  the  stars  align
I  drank  their  potion
said  the  chant
Still  dispirited
counting  time
~
The  hour's  close
near  darkest  night
the  looking  glass  beside  me
Hand  crafted  by  the  little  folk
ornate  with  sprigs  of  ivy
~
Enchanted  ...  yes  ...  they  cannot  lie
my  wish  they  guarantee
Their  word's  been  kept
since  dawning  time
One  minute  more  ...
we'll  see
~
A  deafening  thunder  breaks  the  still
as  lightning  strikes  the  yard
From  gentle  breeze
to  baleful  gale
" They've  got  my  attention  Lord ! "
~
The  ancient  mirror  begins  to  glow
as  the  clock  counts  off  the  trials
My  heart  explodes
beneath  my  chest
with  the  force  of  a  billion  smiles
~
" Take  my  hand  ...
while  the  clock  still  strikes "
your  voice  pleads  ...  from  inside
To  my  surprise
I  reach  within
with  both  arms  open  wide
~
Your  loving  touch
and  I'm  pulled  through  time
to  your  kiss
oh  ...  sweet  embrace
A  whirling  swirling  rainbow  ride
as  the  tears  roll  down  my  face
~
" To  the  end  of  time  ...  I  beg  of  you
Never  leave  these  loving  arms "
" But  there's  one  more  task
you  must  fulfil
if  you  wish  to  win  my  charms "
~
With  sprawling  thud ... I  hit  the  grass
spinning  senses  in  a  daze
A  newborn  sunlight
warms  my  face
sparkling  air
helps  lift  the  haze
~
Such  marvels
cast  this  wondrous  world
your  voice  sings  with  a  smile
... " You  must  catch  me " ...
rings  your  taunting  laugh
from  a  glade
nearly  half  a  mile
~~~

that have never been touched.
There are places inside our hearts -
that need to be loved this much.
