Poem: Final Wish

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

Final wish is a poem about a woman on her death bed trying to communicate her thoughts. She wants him to know that all the money in the world cannot buy him love. That true love is more precious than gold.

Final Wish

Her heart aches,

as she struggles against her last breath

to make him understand,

what her lips can no longer speak.


In her mind's eye she pictures

a jar full of hard earned cash,

next to the emptiness he hides

in the layers of his heart

without a woman’s magic touch.


She looks sternly into his face

focusing on the images,

hoping he reads her mind

before her time is gone,

realizing true love is more precious than gold.
