“I Wish I Were” by Elizabeth (Lily) Cook


Here is a link to a fabulous WordPress poet and her poem, “I Wish I Were”

http://serialoutlet.wordpress.com/2012/10/30/i-wish-i-were-writing-prompt/
I wish I were the sun on high
Witness to an eternity
Of twilights falling over Earth
And over humanity

Myself the gloried light that saw
Darkness take on form
Chaos nursing galaxies
While my body warmed

Time in another measure,
If I were this planet’s star
My lifespan made tangible
A light-year near and far

For I would know vast distances
And universal beauties
And after human empire
I would learn what is to be
