I wish I had whispered it

under my breath: 

a throw away line

 

If only I had written it on a letter

in an envelope, stamped but  

never  mailed  

 

If there were no witnesses

no He said,  she said

would anyone know? 

 

I wished for a lot of things, but 

what I said was Goodbye,  

and a bird set free                                                                                                        flies

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 



I made a wish, I said it out loud,  Out loud in a crowd

Everybody heard,  It was the talk of the town.
