Holiday Wishes

All I want for Christmas is what I want every year
Not presents, not a card, not a crisp white tree
But just for my family to be here
And to spend a little time with me

All I hope for the holidays is what I hope for in many instances
Not riches, not to own a mansion or an expensive car
But just for loved ones all across the world to put aside their differences
And to be happy with whatever they have and wherever they are

All I wish for this year is what I wish for me and everybody's lives
Not to be understood, not to be number one or the smartest girl 
But just for that person who is contemplating suicide
To know that they have a purpose in this world

All I ask for is simple indeed, but simplicity is everything it can never be
Truth is, the chances for my being President is higher than seeing these wishes 
happening
