I wish myself into the future

I wish myself into the future

but then yet

I would have missed the cool

late summer air on my

skin.

 

I wish myself into the future

but then yet

I would have missed her

beautiful smile

and laugh

as she

sat with me.

 

I wish myself into the future

but then yet

I would have missed

the world go by

as I sat

staring silently

into space.

 

I wish myself into the future

but then yet

I would have missed

the bright sunshine caressing

my skin

on a glorious late

August day.

 

I wish myself into the future

but then yet

I would have missed

the couple

walking hand in hand in the

park.

 

I wish myself into the future

but then yet

I would have missed

the early morning sunshine

wake me from

my

sleep.

 

I wish myself in the future

but then yet

I would have missed

the dusk

as it settled in

to close yet

another day.

 

I wish myself into the future

only to forget

the true gifts

exist in the present.
