I Wish

On the dawn of a new year and heels of one that can be described like no other I had an opportunity to sit down and not only think about what I miss, but what I wish.

As a result, I wrote a parable that I believe is about as close to a slice of heaven as one can get. A parable is a symbolic short story that illustrates or teaches some truth, religious principle or moral lesson.

Sometimes we forget what is important. If nothing else perhaps “I Wish” cannot only help us appreciate this world, but also understand the next, especially during these anxious, fearful and uncertain times.

I Wish

Kids didn’t grow up so fast.

We learned from the past.

And love would always last.

I wish; every Friday that came and went.

Were followed Saturday by a special event.

Sunday nights wouldn’t feel as bleak.

And Monday’s blues didn’t start the week.

I wish; life was fair.

God granted every victim’s prayers.

And bullies got what was theirs.

I wish: Underdogs would always win.

We knew now what we didn’t then.

And all mistakes were not a sin.

I wish; Spring’s promise lasted all year.

Summer days were always clear.

Autumn’s leaves were more than a trend.

And Winter storms were just pretend.

I wish; Thanksgiving helped us see.

No matter where we find ourselves.

How grateful we should be.

I wish; Christmas Eve would never end.

We didn’t have to worry about what we spend.

And New Year’s Day we could start again.

I wish; dogs would live, as long as we do.

Friendships were always true.

Grandparents never felt alone.

And everyone remembered to phone.

I wish; no one hungry was denied.

Cancer was beaten by all who tried.

We didn’t have to say goodbye.

And our loved ones never died.


“The world makes sense to us because we die, not because we don’t.”

Richard is the author of It’s Not Goodbye, It’s See You Later; a collection of inspirational parables that honor the memory of those dear to our hearts.

In this life people often leave or are left wishing they had just five more minutes and even the magic of Christmas cannot possibly give those who grieve what they would truly love.

This holiday season as family and friends share their memories of loved ones please take one of those minutes to also share this article in an effort that not only comforts those in grief, but inspires others to believe; “The Best is Yet to Come!”
