“A wish upon a star”


A wish upon a star

A Poem by Coyote Poetry

Old dreams never fade away.

A  wish upon a star

Every night before I close my eyes.
I whisper your name.

I make a wish to kiss your lips and
to feel the heat of your body.

I sent you a prayer.
A prayer you have found happiness.

I held you so tightly once.
But I saw the loneliness and
the hunger for the road in your eyes.

My wandering Angel was dying.
I drove you to the airport.

I watched as you flew away from me and
I whispered I would wait for you.

I knew when you set a wild animal free.
They will  never come back.

I drink the tequila now and
I run down Big Sur beach yelling your name.

Sweet name to my heart.

I sit by the  Monterey bay and
after the tequila killed all my senses.

I dream I can see you dancing naked on the beach.
Whispering to  me.
” life is to be lived. Don’t wallow in sadness.”

You told me once you love me more than life..
I will never leave you.

And a sweet love can create a prison and a paradise.

I close my eyes and
I see my beautiful lady wandering the world.

I wish to have your hand in mine,
for us to take  long walks on the Monterey sand..

I’m waiting on the Big Surf beach and
I will  wish on the first star in the sky.

To be able to look into your eyes.
Tell you I love you.
