“The Wish”

The Wish


When he looked into her eyes he made a wish,

A wish for love he had only dreamed of,

He lost count of the times he looked into the skies

With tear filled eyes

Wishing upon night-time planes passing by

Hoping they will take his wish to a far-off place

A place where dreams come true



He wished so hard with blinded eyes

For his love was there with no disguise,

He saw her every day

Making time

Going out of his way

To just say “hi”


See, that’s just his way

Oblivious is he,

Who can’t see the wood

For the trees

But take it from me

There’s nobody I know more caring

And kind, and thoughtful.


She waited for his move

Which shyly came

Realising his missed time

Wishing on planes

And headlights of passing cars

On drives beneath the very stars

Which knew each and every wish

For love of the truest kind,


And he told her he loved her

For he couldn’t sleep

Knowing reality

Was finally better than all his dreams


And those of you with the keenest eyes

May notice one less star within the skies.
