If I had but one wish, and it would come true
I’d grant that I’d have more days living with you
And if that one wish could possibly be
It would unleash a thousand more wishes for me

If you could live longer, you’d be there each time
At your grandson’s games, refereeing from the lines
You would take them neat places and teach them to fish
And make sure you’d fulfill each little wish

If you could live longer we’d fulfill those dreams
That we’ve been planning for years now, those wonderful schemes
We’d go back to your homeland , build a house by the bay
Where you would do nothing but fish every day

You’d follow the footsteps of each of your sons
And you’d say, proud of you, that’s the way it is done
You’d watch the young mother you raised of your own
And marvel at how she takes care of her home

You wouldn’t miss a birthday, a show or event
And take all the grandkids wherever you went
And you’d love everyone of them as you well do
And they would return all the loving to you

This wish is a fantasy, surely you feel
But I still have one wish that I know to be real
That no matter the days you have left on this earth
I wish you those things that have greatest worth

Peace and contentment, family and friends
Love and devotion and care with no end
Faith in the Lord and in your destiny
And peace there in heaven for eternity

Liz,

This is a sweet and touching poem.  What a wish.  If only it were that simple.  I love the end.  Those things do have the greatest worth.  Beautiful writing.
