Somewhere in Noe Valley,
a little neighborly part of San Francisco,
is this wish tree.
All decorated up,
it’s covered with tags filled with people’s wishes.
I came across it this morning and had to stop to read:
“Wishing for your inner light to shine bright.”
“I wish for my teenage daughter and I to get along better.”
“I wish for justice and peace for economic equality.”
“Peace within and in the world.”
“That I have a healthy baby and that this is a healthy and happy pregnancy!”
“I wish to just feel myself again – centered, happy and whole.”
All beautiful wishes.
And then this,
This is my wish, too.
