I Wish

I Wish

A Poem by James
"

This poem is about my father, who passed away a few years back. I miss him dearly

"
I had to get better at writing
so I could express how I felt
to a world that seems lost without you
how I wish things were different
wish different cards had been dealt
my mind is floundering and askew
without you

I wish I 
could get to the next plane of existence
I wish I
could go there suffering no resistance
But I know
that I have to stay here at home

I had to get better at fighting
so I could battle myself
for control of the emotions that threatened to overwhelm
how I wish they would dissipate
or stay on the shelf
it feels like my heart is threatening to fail
without you

I wish I 
could get to the next plane of existence
I wish I 
could go there suffering no resistance
But I know
that I can't let go of home

My hands are shaking
My hands are shaking
I can't let go

My hands are shaking
My  hands are shaking
I'll never let go
