i want, i want, i want

about 5 lifetimes.
less stuff.
stories to tell on my way out.
someone to lie next to.
ideas and a voice.
a do-over from time to time.
more time to play and daydream and pine.
that which i cannot have.
a break from my own inertia.
your good opinion.
bravery, pluck, spirit.
an endless stream of melody, rhythm, and harmony.
a weekend in the woods.
the words when i need them.
a child's capacity for abandon.
foresight over hindsight.
clarity, and yet not.
things worth surrender.
things worth the battle.
