Making a Wish

Written by: ilene bauer

Close your eyes and make a wish;
You’re sure it’s what you want.
As wishes go, about this one, 
You’re rather nonchalant.

But sometimes wishes do come true – 
You chalk it up to luck;
Yet hidden dangers might appear – 
Then baby, you are stuck!

For what was dangling out of reach
Had such a sweet allure
And now that it’s plunked in your lap,
You aren’t really sure.

So next time that you make that wish,
Take time and think it through,
‘Cause if it happens, you won’t know
Just what the heck to do!
