In My Life I'd Like to See

People laughing and growing in, Truth and Joy. Love. Souls praising Beauty, Creation, Suffering gracefully. I'd like to see old men grinning, little ladies skipping - remembering dances in starlit youth. Kids in playgrounds fighting and skipping rope, merry-go-rounds and that one child that always gets on though they know it will make them sick. I want to see little boys and girls fishing with Uncles and Aunts - ketchup smeared on short pants. Babies laughing and being born -  people dying and being mourned. In my life I would like to see morning porridge and evening tea. Someone to love all of you, and yes - someone to love me.

The End
