One Wish

October 20, 2011
If I had one wish, I could wish for many things.
With one wish I could with to be in a successful band.
WIth one wish I could wish for world peace.
With one wish I could wish for everyone to be happy.

But if I had one wish, I think it would be about you.
I could wish to hold you in my arms.
I could wish to feel the passion of your kiss.
I could wish to be yours forever.

But out of all these things, there is still the number one thing I would use that wish for-
to be with you, physically, right now.

Yet, even as I think about what to do with this one wish,
I think of you and my selfishness goes away.
I think about your smile, your laugh, and your amazing personality.

So with this one wish, all I wish for is for you to be happy. That is my one wish.

This is really good, very sweet. There were some spots where it seemed like the flow was off some, but it can be easily fixed by reading it aloud. Keep writing, you obviously have much potential and I'd be intrested in reading more of your work.
