Unexpected

A Poem by Payman Akhlaghi

Unexpected
By: Payman Akhlaghi I wished for a drop And you gave me the sea: If only I’d known to stay at the bay. I wished for a gleam And you showed me the sun: If only I’d known to look away. I wished for a glimpse And you opened the gates:

For M.

If only I’d known to pick roses on the way. I wished for a note And you gave me a song: If only I’d known how to play.
