Valueless Lamp

WISHES . . .

If I could have my wishes,
If wishes did come true;
I would wish for happiness,
And a long full life for you.
I would wish for laughter,
And fill your life with song;
Then ask for peace and joy and love,
To follow you all day long.

Then I would ask for peaceful rest,
To visit you at night;
And that your every morning,
Dawn shimmering and bright.
I would ask for nothing,
To give back to myself;
As long as you are happy,
I want for nothing else.

For just to see contentment,
On your face and know you're fine;
Would truly satisfy me,
And bring joy to this heart of mine.
If I could have my wishes,
If wishes did come true;
I'd wish for the sun, moon and stars,
And I'd give them all to you.

  3. What a beautiful Alladin's lamp, and a lovely poem to match!

  4. That's a beautiful looking lamp -- but aren't you a week ahead of us? I thought W was next week. I'm sure it doesn't really matter anyway.

  5. Well, you said a lot with just one picture, an interesting title and a poem. Still, I do see some value in that lovely lamp :)
