Wish upon a falling star

and peg your hopes to a flaming meteor

Blow out the candles on your cake

and wish on the symbolic extinguishing of flame

Wish upon a first star

on where your sight lands

toss a coin in a fountain

throw your wish in behind

break a wishbone with a friend

there goes another

white horses and rainbows

dandelions and feathers

we throw away desires on meaningless moments


But make a wish

when your heart yearns so badly

you feel it might break

make a wish

when need is strong and desperation stronger

Make a wish

in wistful longing for a moment of beauty

Send your wishes

your hopes and your fears

out, beyond,

to the One who knows you

the One who loves you

the One who gives you

the desires of your heart
