Close your eyes. Make a wish.
There is a chance that this wish will give you hope, if not anything else.
It could just give you something to hold on to when you feel like slipping.
I'm not talking about the kind of wish that you would make when you blow out your birthday candles.
It's not the kid of wish that allows your childhood dream of a new bicycle.
This is the kind of wish that only has to do with matters of the heart.
It deals exclusively with things you can feel.
There is a special kind of wish that I would like to make.
Maybe it's more of a prayer.
A hope for something to hold on to.
A wish for a soft blanket to be swaddled in.
A safe place.
