I wish I could dump your fears into the ocean,

and let them sink away from your memory

I wish I could fire your doubts amongst the stars,

so you could see the beauty in uncertainty

I wish I could highlight your best features,

so you may always be aware of them

I wish I could take the hurt you felt and let it burn,

so love may grow from the ashes

I wish I could preserve every thought spoken, silence shared, and smile given

But most of all, I wish I could make it known that you are the realest person I have ever met
