If Wishes Were Fishes

Palm Jumeirah, United Arab Emirates, 2012.

 

If wishes were fishes,
you would be my ocean,
granting mine full freedom
from the oceanarium.

If I might be reborn,
I would be an otter –
hands held even in sleep,
to float apart, never.

If I could I would live
a thousand different lives
– yet, no longer. In you,
I found vast multitudes.

Stills capture a moment,
as words do emotions;
and together, they create
a life, a story – Us.
