A Wish For Ana

by David R Spellman

to mend the broken spirit
which cries to be free
to bleach away the stained
clothing you have worn
to wring out the tears
into a fresh mountain spring
and wrench out the thorns
you've wrapped yourself around
and show you the beauty
that you refuse to see
and the wonder of you
that you are meant to be...
how I wish it were that simple
to change the mold
of a woman who's bought
all that she's sold,
a fruit that withered
grown stone cold,
a seed once planted
can still become gold


Author's Note: For one who will probably never know...

Well, Lori pretty much said it best, but I will add to it by saying that I really liked it as well.

So poignant yet hopefilled. Beautifully expressed tragedy with a glimmer of hope.

A truly beautiful sentiment for what is clearly a beautiful woman David. Excellent ending, or maybe better...a new beginning?!
