I want things

I’ve never wanted

Or didn’t know I did

Peaceful days

Patient people

Comfortable friends

Content nights

Warm arms to

Fall asleep in

Strong arms to

Support my failings

The dreams I had

Died with youth

My older heart

Just wants to rest

And feel loved

  1. Beautifully said. But I’d add that, sometimes, the dreams we have within our younger hearts don’t die as much as they are transformed by the wisdom and understanding we gain over time. I speak from experience 😉
