a wish?


I was browsing through London pictures and stumbled upon this one - me in Trafalgar Square. All I really remember from this day was a lot of walking and it getting a bit on the chilly side. I wanted to sit next to this fountain because a. I love fountains, b. It had a mermaid on it and c. I was tired and my feet hurt.

Katie asked me if my wish came true today. Thinking back to when we threw our coins into the center. To be honest, I can't remember my wish. Is it lost? Did it go to a place of forgotten fountain wishes?

I have a slight idea of what the wish was - or maybe it was more of a plea, or prayer. One 'wish' that will remain locked in the attics of my mind. Because, even though I don't remember the exact 'wish' - I do remember how I felt that day, in the sqaure, with the mermaid.

one with her hands
open
don't be afraid, she said
no one will know it
just you and me
and when it's over
i'll go back

i remember how i felt at that moment too. it was a mixutre of serenity, optimism, excitement, contentment, and, well, wishfulness. i made two wishes that day. they were similar. one an underlying wish of the other.

the wish that i was too afraid to wish for, but still did in my heart, came true...for a little while. even though i lost it, i know that it's in my wish vault along with the others.
