I hope

by Jason Alan

I hope that every night it kills you
and every morning resurrects you
I hope each afternoon shall vex you
and every evening finds me next to you

I hope that every horizon meets you
I hope that every turn will teach you
I hope that every pause…
it greets you
I hope that every thought defeats you

I wish that every day it breaks you
that every moment grabs you, takes you
I wish that every hour makes you
a new emotion, shakes you, quakes you

I wish that we shall touch one day
I hope we’ll share our deep dismay
the world was made for us, I say
and I, for you, come what may
