To Wish For One Thing by Shalymar P

I look up at those stars above,

Farther than the sky can touch,

There is place where dreams are weaved,

I want my dream to come true,

I know life will leave me,

I know loved ones will be lost,

But I don’t know if my dream will come to life, And live forever, To wish for one thing, And one thing only, What would it be?

I don’t want to give up my faith,

And lose my grasp on my dream,

A dream bound to leave,

A footprint in the sand so deep,

The ocean may not wash it away,

To wish for one thing,

And one thing only,

What would it be?

I want my dream to burn,

To burn so bright that it cannot be ignored, A dream the shadows can’t take, A dream that will stay with the rising sun, A dream the stars will embrace, Oh please let it be, To wish for one thing, And one thing only, What would it be?

Don’t let the rough fingers of the world Toss my dream around, I can’t let it drown for their fun, Let my dream be, Let my dream come true, To wish for one thing, And one thing only, What would it be?

As I watch the sun set with the gold,

As I watch the day leave,

Don’t let my dream fade,

I want to keep it locked in my heart,

Until it’s time to come true,

I want it to be an unforgettable glow of the sky, I don’t want it to be forgotten, To wish for one thing, And one thing only, What would it be?

I wish my dream to come true.

  2. This is really lovely. I finally found a GREAT example of how repetition cans be used well in a writing. Thanks!
