When I have to bend things around you
And that is not the time I wanted.
When we sit in separate worlds
And that is not the love I wanted.
When we walk and talk and don't agree
And that is not the friendship I wanted.
I turn up everyday and I fail
And that is not the path I wanted.
I approach each day in pain and limitation
And that is not the body I wanted.
The body I wanted is lithe and strong
And can take on the world I wanted.
Where I fly on my feet and play and work
And make that world I wanted.
And fill it with lovers, friends and children
Each the lovers, friends and children I wanted
To join me in living this life,
The one I always wanted.
And perhaps, if I squint and ignore the holes
I can see, I have all I wanted.
