Written for Carry on Tuesday Prompt #92
This week, the opening of a love poem by Cortney Kuchta, One Wish
"If I could have just one wish"
(Use any part of it within your poem or prose)
My son is on the right with the sunglasses
If I could have one wish today
T’would be for peace upon our world
For that would surely be the way
To bring my son home flags unfurled.
He’s in Afghanistan right now
Where danger lurks beneath the ground.
Where I.E.D.’s will not allow
A sure safe passage to be found.
Although I am a realist
And know that wars are here to stay
My wish for peace would still persist
If I could have one wish today.
