If I had one wish
For what will I wish?
Will it be for all the riches I can hold?
or long life till I am so old?
Or will I wish like King Solomon did- for wisdom
Or for a glimpse of the future untold
Will I wish for my lover’s touch?
Or for all the best upon my offspring’s path
Will I wish for the promotion I desire
Or for some hidden unspoken desire
Will I wish for five minutes with a departed loved one
Or for the secrets of the great beyond
Should I wish for joy and peace of mind
Or of fame and glory unbound
Or maybe I should wish for world peace
I do not know what I would claim
If ever I should be asked
To make one wish
But, if you had one wish
What would it be?
