The Wishes That Didn’t Come True

the wishes that didn't come true ~ a poem about wishes by Ms Moem @MsMoem

He blew his birthday candles out.
Her penny hit the well.
They closed their eyes, and dreamed a dream
That they would a never tell.
The children pulled the wishbone.
Dandelion seeds dispersed.
Fingers crossed so hopefully;
Rituals well-rehearsed.
But no-one ever mentions,
Though successes counted are few,
The wishes made upon a star
That never did come true.
