You can make a wish when all
Your birthday candles blow.
Shooting stars and wishes are
Another way to go.

A coin tossed in a fountain
Or a wishbone split in two
Are other means that people have
To make a dream come true.

Many, though, are not aware
An eyelash is equipped
To intercept a wish, as well,
As soon as it has slipped.

A famous Seinfeld episode
Portrayed an eyelash war
Where Kramer’s buddy FDR
Kept eyelash-pulling score.

An eyelash wish, however,
Even used with overkill,
Stands the same chance as the others
To come true – and that is nil!

    Dreams and wishes do come true if you never awake. But when your eyes fly open wide your vision will forsake. But hope is everternal to keep the soul alive. So when your fancy speaks to you, just let it's voice contrive. :) I think I have something in my eye. :)
