I Wish – Pacifique Niyitanga

Like sunshine
In the blue sky
Shiny and warm
Through the mists;

Like a singing bird
At daybreak
Voicing its rapture
Free and confident;

I want to wake up
Like a sunflower,
Waving through the
Slow-blowing wind.

I wish I would
Sleep peacefully
Before midnight,
Soft and warm as a child;

I could wake up
in the morning light,
Tranquil in delight
As a tripping butterfly.
