I wish you a day, draft no. 2

I wish you a sick day so that you can

stay in bed with your chicken soup with rice

and your soda and remember

what it was like when you were small

just a girl in your bed

all cozy and loved


I wish you snow day so you can remember

the joy of smoothing a snow angel

you were certain the angels approved of

(and you were right)


I wish you a rainy day

so that you can recall

the joy of splashing puddles in your rain boots


I wish you a day that you never forget

because God dwelt in you
