I Wish

I wish I could write some poetry

I wish I could find the words

I wish I could take the pain away

I wish.

I wish I could be of use.

I wish I could do something to help.

Today is just another day?

I wish.

Today, Baby Tilda should be with her family.

Being spoiled

The centre of attention

The star of the show.

Instead, her family are planning to say their final goodbye.

I wish I could make things different, better.

I wish I could make it right.

I wish I could turn back time.

I wish.


  1. Beautiful, and words that so many of us share x

  2. Well done for expressing what we all feel.

  3. Thank you. It is so hard to think of anything constructive and helpful to do, and even the words are hard to come by. I hope that Matilda's family gain some comfort, however small, from knowing that there are so many people who care about them and keep them close to their hearts.

  4. We do and I love this poem. It is in the same style that I write which makes it a favourite for me x Thank you for being so kind to us x

    1. I'm glad you are able to take some comfort from us all. I know it will never be enough, but it is something to build on, perhaps. xxx

  5. A sentiment we all share, beautifully expressed xx

  6. I wish I could do something more too. Lovely lovely post. Thank you so much for linking up for Matilda's birthday
