She Wishes

For all she is worth

She Wishes

She gazes up to see a shining star

Suddenly falling down to earth,

She places a wish on this falling star

For all her life is worth.


She wishes for things to be better

Better than they have been today,

She wishes you hadn’t been so cruel

And instead of leaving, stayed.


She wishes things could still be

As good as they once were,

She wishes your love

Was not so hurtful to her.


She wishes for the return of happiness

To wash away all the pain and sorrow,

She wishes for a small ray of hope

To see better days tomorrow.


I know what she is wishing

As they are my wishes too,

But not a single wish of ours

Is yet to come true.
