I wrote this on a night I was feeling sorry for myself. My best friend in this world is a married man who I love dearly. I respect his situation but will always wonder what it would be like to have just one day in his wife's shoes. She doesn't realize how lucky she is. Before you are quick to judge, I am not looking to break up a marriage. I only want to express the feelings I have locked inside.

Three Wishes
If I had three wishes,
I would wish to trade lives,
With a person so lucky,
A woman,
Your wife.

Just to have one day of waking up beside you,
Looking into those beautiful eyes,
Tasting your morning lips.
To make slow love to you
'Til we collapse into each other's arms.
I want to watch you shower and
Help with the hard to reach areas (wink).
I will make your breakfast and
Send you to work with a kiss and a smile.
I would love nothing more than to be that person
You come home to after work,
To greet with a hug.
We can talk over dinner . . .
Enjoy dessert much much later (smile).
I want nothing more than to appreciate
The beautiful, kind, caring, gentle, honest,
loyal and loving man you are.

I would love the chance
To show you what you deserve and
Enjoy what she has.
If I had three wishes . . .
I would give away two, because
The only thing I want in this world,
Is one chance with you!

    Hi Christelle, You have very nice and sweet poem that express people feeling who experience the same thing. Keep your good work an for sure will waiting for your poem in the future. The only thing different between me with others that I fall in love with a guy who attached with his girlfriend for 3 years already. I just realize my feeling toward him 7 months ago and till today I become his best friend. Although its hurt and pain, I can't leave him. I'm the only best friend he had to share everything. If by stand beide him can amke him happy then I'll do it although I need to neglect my own hapiness. All the best for all of you who fall in love with other people who attached already. God Bless You Always

    This is so hard to deal with when you fall for your best friend. I am just becoming best friends with a friend I stopped talking for personnel reasons. But now it has been we are reconnecting and he is married and I am so sad. Happy but sad. Praying for his happiness but wishing like Christelle to be the wife.

    This is a very heartfelt poem. It made me fall tears from my eyes. It's being in love with someone whom you know that you can't demand anything from him and can't show him how much you love him and how special he is. I think I'm in this kind of situation right now and it's really hard. After I read the comments,it's a relief because now I know that I'm not the only one suffering from this kind of dilemma and it's normal. Its really hard.

    this poem is really good. i think that is how me and my boyfriend started going out. he was with this girl and i would do anyhthing to be with him. and i done just about all of them things to him when we first got together. i love this poem and you are a really good writer.

    I'm having an affair with a married man and like the author have no desire to split him up from his wife (who is lovely). The poem struck a chord with me. It's exactly how I feel, wanting to wake up with him and for him to come home to me, not her. Its good to know, and a comfort, that I am not the only one who feels this way! Thanks, V x
