when i wish upon a star
sometimes i forget what i am wishing for
and begin to make up stories
about why they might not be in store.
sometimes i try for big wishes
and smaller ones too.
sometimes i feel guilty for wishing too hard
and asking for things when stars might have more to do.
but, some wishes transcend pennies,
and dip in fountains clear,
fly past the heavens,
and settle in an angel's lone ear.
some wishes are made a lifetime ago
and continue to fill me with fear;
they make me feel warm on a lonely day
but produce a saline tear.
for if you listen closely,
you might just hear,
my very simple wish from now until forever:
"i wish that you were near."
