May The Gods Grant You My Wish


May life make you truly rich,
May your blessings be divine,
May your house be blessed with love,
May your life be blessed with time,
May your mind be filled with wonder,
May your heart stay strong and true,
May your fears be cast asunder,
May your courage see you through,
May your spirit always shine,
May the gods grant you my wish,
May your blessings be divine,
May your life be truly rich.

Hi Jason! Simply beautiful - would be a fantastic poem to read at a christening, or a wedding, for example. Great writing as always.

Thanks Po, I know I write some dark and some stark stuff a lot of the time, but deep down, essentially, I'm a hoper, and I'm proud of that. The world needs hope.

This is truly wonderfully written Jason.

I see this verse inscribed on an ancient urn that is uncovered long after we have all left this dust bowl behind and new intrepid travellers from afar.

Who discovered this dead planet once thrived and teamed with life. Before the virus came and wiped out all trace of us... almost!

Until upon a screen on an orbiting travellers starship, picks up the image of this urn buried deep in the wastelands of a once huge Metropolis.

Your words already hold the shape of that yet future unspun vessel of a time capsule of our now!

What a wonderful legacy you have penned J

They will remember us.
