I Wish

I Wish by Phil Hackett


I wish I could stop loving you
I wish it would just stop
I wish nothing but the best for you
You were my best friend and my rock
I wish I could stop loving you
I wish for that a lot
I wish that I had seen your view
And understood what I did not
I wish I could stop loving you
‘Cause now you love me not
I wish it didn’t hurt you too
It adds suffering to my lot
I wish I could stop loving you
But I don’t wish, I did not
‘Cause the times we had together
Were the best it ever got

Missing Summer

Missing Summer by Phil Hackett
The sun dappled clouds

cleared by the breeze,

birds sing out loud

whistling through the trees,

The storms that gather.

A green and pleasant land.

The rain that pours,

soak the soil and the sand.

Scudding clouds.

Pollen counts.

My lover misses them all.

Beaches, coves and forest floors.

Mountains, valleys, glens and moors.

She’s missing summer.

And then the fall.
By Phil Hackett
My wife has suffered from ME for eighteen years but her health has deteriorated since last summer.

Written as an entry for the #MissingMillions poetry competition to support MEAction for ME Awareness Month.
