If stars were candies

Updated: Apr 1, 2022

I wish I could peruse your mind

into the recess of my heart,

where myriad stories

find its own epilogue.

I wish I could jump uphill

clasping Jill's pail in my arms.

Sit and gaze at the stars

waiting for the whistling wagon

as it meanders along the

the craters on the moon.

Every wintry night

I wish I could walk barefoot

till the coldness

seeps into my soul.

Dive into the ocean

in search of that stone

that could soothe

every human wound.

If stars were candies

and heaven's the rug

I would envelop them all

for the children in us.

If stars were candies

I would dive into the

ocean of books

where I could read them all

at a single look.

Love would bloom where

my eyes fell upon,

my smile would heal

every past we endure.

**Dedicated to the child who resides within all of us.
