Save You

For Those Times We Want to Save Someone Who Wants to Be Saved

Save You

I had but one wish

Had it been granted

You would be a young Daffodil

I had but one wish, And

If it is ever granted

I would paint the sky rose again

*

Alas, My reflection in the mirror

Says otherwise

Amidst the cries of my soul

Pleading for release. Trapped she is-

In the capsule of the mirror

In the capsule of a happy Daffodil

And the wish I wished to be granted

Matters no more

When what I see makes my eyes sore

*

Yet, I don’t wish to be blind

For the truth is seen with the gut

And I don’t wish to be numb

For I’m a bit too simple for that one

but wait- “There is more” rings differently

For with the story of life, I’m not done

*

Yet, I have a wish I want to grant

And that is to save you

Girl in the mirror,

A hero, for you, I want to be

As long as you and I think I can

As long as you want me to

For we need each other,

We, dazzling Daffodils.
