The Things I Hope to See

There are things I will never see-

Like the end to world hunger,

Or the rule of peace over the land.


There are things I will never hold-

Like the brightest, unruliest star,

Or the palm of your hand.


There are things I will never hear again-

Like the sound of your laugh,

Or your breathing in tune with mine.


There are things I will never feel again,

Like the thrill of young love,

Or the calm of a simpler time.



Lilly Godwin is a seventeen-year-old dreamer hailing from the mystical Louisiana, U.S.
