Wishes

Not to assume anything
but if you are alone
at the moment you read this
with no one hovering at your side or back
and it’s a time of welcome solitude
stolen from your usual crowded
life, then I wish for you
to find here a set of wings
to raise you from the throng
into this happiness
whenever you want.

Still making no assumptions
but if you are alone when you read this
and it is a longer moment of alone
leaning into or full-on stuck inside 
a life-poverty of loneliness, then
I wish for you to find here a set of wings
that may take you far and wide seeking
and finding others to enrich you.

I set now my last assumption aside
and say that if you are not alone 
when you read this, if by choice or chance
or great good fate you are with those
who make you happy or at least 
allow you to be fully yourself, then
I wish for you to find here a set of wings
long and strong enough to raise
all those you love to be with 
to whatever height seems best
for all of you.
