I Wished

I Wished I wished on a shooting star I wished on the first star I saw in the night I wished on an eyelash to find a true love I wished on the candles on my birthday cake I wished on the penny I threw in the well I wished on a wishbone breaking it in two I wished on a dandelion blowing seeds into the air I wished on a ladybug to grant me good luck I wished our love would come true I wished you knew of my love for you I wished that I knew… you were wishing for me too I wished I wished I wished I wished until there were no wishes left (Damn! Where’s that Genie when you need him?)

Whimsical and fun. Repetition does not often work for me but from you it worked out amazingly right.

Thank you for your gracious comment.I have much to learn about the formats of poetry. I've used repetition before but, only at the every couple of lines or so. Never completely used it so obviously as this one. :)))
