Wishing on Stars

Wishing on Stars

Thoughts are sent up in the air
with hopes they will reach you
as we stare at the same moon
Letting the thousands of miles between us
shrink into meaninglessness

But endless days stretch 
into future loneliness 
and I find myself wishing
to be gifted patience
to understand that this is not forever

Feeling incomplete as if
a limb has been removed
and without which I cannot function
Some days I walk with a limp 
Others I feel incapacitated 

I wish upon night stars for your return
That I might be whole again

      You’re so kind David. It’s just poetry though. Having been in that situation in my past, it’s easy to write about. ☺️💕🌺

        I do tend to worry some readers sometimes 😧 I just want to write poetry that is relatable.
