I Wish I Were

I wish I were an orchid blooming
upon a hilltop quiet
at some remote place
where only robins visit,
and evergreens reach up
to touch God,
their covered branches
rendering shade,
with sunlight seeping through
to give me warmth.

I wish you were the quiet hill
upon which I grew;
then I would bloom more lovely
from sun to sun
as I embraced you
with my life.
