The Wish ~ Poem by Ella Wheeler Wilcox

The Wish

Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Should some great angel say to me to-morrow,
   “Thou must re-tread thy pathway from the start,
But God will grant, in pity, for thy sorrow,
   Some one dear wish, the nearest to thy heart.”

This were my wish!—from my life’s dim beginning
   Let be what has been! wisdom planned the whole
My want, my woe, my errors, and my sinning,
   All, all were needed lessons for my soul.”

Excerpt From

I am an optimistic, can do, and never quit guy. The spirit of hope indelibly marks my DNA. My research at The Ohio State University helped people discover the best in themselves and change their personal lives, public organizations, and whole communities. I bring the same spirit and enthusiasm to my blog to help those who grieve who find themselves suddenly alone, navigate their grieving. Join my more than 24,300Twitter (@alwaysgoodstuff).
