One day …… Oh how I wish

My life feels like a china shop and I am the preverbial bull

Oh how I wish I thought the glass was half full

Oh how I wish to get better using all my strength and might

Oh how I wish I could get a restful sleep at night.

Often I feel very sad, down and blue

Oh how I wish people could be honest and true

Sometimes I feel poorly, sick and ill

Oh how I wish I could be fixed with a pill

I can be contacted through phone, mail or fax

Oh how I wish I could learn to relax

I feel part of my life my illness did rob

Oh how I feel I could still do my job

Somedays are good and somedays are bad

O how I wish I wouldn’t feel so sad

Often my heart races so  fast I feel I’m dying

Oh how I wish I could stop this constant crying

When I broke my leg it was fixed with a cast

Oh how I wish I could forget about the past

At times I felt good, like a proper superhero

Oh how I wish I wouldn’t feel like zero

Often I feel grey and dull from this has begun

Oh how I wish I felt bright like the sun

Sometimes I feel I can’t deal with my issues

Oh how I wish I wouldn’t need so many tissues

Often I feel that I am not a good wife

Oh how I wish I could get a handle on life.

I understand life is not always a picnic in the park

Oh how I wish my life wasn’;t so dark

I love my family to me they are very dear

Oh how I wish I wasn;’t so consumed by fear

Everyday I fight negativity with all my might

Oh how I wish there was a silver lining in sight

Somedays I am laughing, somedays in a huff

Oh how I wish my head wasn’t full of rubbish stuff

Often I wake and could be in a good or bad mood

Oh how I wish more people understood

Sometimes I fee like winter, cold, windy and rain

Oh how I wish I didn’t feel in so much pain

I never know what role people want me to play

Oh how I wish I didn’t feel this way

It’s the end of the poem I have nothing more to say

Oh how I wish I was better…………One Day
