I Wish

I wish heartaches didn’t take so long to heal
I wish there were kids who weren’t having to miss a meal

I wish I could pay all my bills on time
I wish babies didn’t have to die

I wish love wasn’t so out of reach
I wish people acted how they preach

I wish kids didn’t have to grow up without a parent in the home
I wish I didn’t have to go to bed alone

I wish friends stayed the same forever
I wish we were kinder to one another

I wish I didn’t always feel so scarred
I wish life wasn’t so hard

What do you wish for?
