My Dearest Wish


Oh, to walk in your fields
and lanes once again
with the carefree heart
that once was mine.

To rest against your trees
while reading a book
or lay in your soft grass
while counting clouds in the sky.

To romp in the hills
with cousins and friends
and relax by a stream
while listening to it's gurgle.

This is my dearest wish
but, I fear it will never be
for I have changed and
cannot find that carefree heart.
