The Only Wish

I never wished to be
a lonely sparrow
that lives in a luxurious
golden cage

I never wished to be
a strong eagle
that flies across the
clear blue sky

I never wished to be
a brawny lion
that reigns the kingdom
of wild animals

I never wished to be
the sunshine
that has lost its
lustrous glow

I never wished to be
a high mountain
that has no beautiful
pelting cascades

I never wished to be
the deep blue sea
that has no precious
pearls at its bottom

I never wished to be
the morning dew
that spills away from
a dangling rose

I never wished to be
the silver tears
that fall from your
sparkling eyes

I only wished to be
a golden memory
that always remains
in your mind...
