one wish

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?
