I wish orchids would grow on the streams of tears you've
shed over the years,
If only to see how beautiful you have always been.
I wish you could see the light of the moon as I gaze into your eyes,
darker than black,
If only to realize how profound your insight has always been.
I wish everything you touched turned into platinum,
If only to understand how invaluable you are,
How you've touched and enriched so many lives.
What people harshly criticize is a
reflection of their unrealized dreams;
So dear writer, keep writing,
keep filming, director,
keep rocking out, musician,
keep drawing, artist,
move like water, dancer,
Breathe life with your art.
Empire State fading;
a sign that nothing lasts.
Good or bad, look up.
I stand at the edge
of adventure, of the unknown,
unsure of myself.
White light at the end!
Even if you are alone,
Press on towards hope.
