If I Had Three Wishes

Wedded bliss evermore
Wedded bliss evermore
This love is so amazing
This love is so amazing
We could spread our wings and fly
We could spread our wings and fly
We would travel round the world
We would travel round the world
Let's reach up to touch the sky
Let's reach up to touch the sky
Simply breath taking
Simply breath taking
Just smile - it really is contagious!
Just smile - it really is contagious!
Let's make this world a happier place
Let's make this world a happier place


Have you ever noticed if you smile you feel so much better. When we are happy we smile. If you are feeling rather sad or particularly down make an effort and smile, it really does help you know. Try it and see what happens! Smile at everyone you meet and notice their reaction.


If I Had Three Wishes


If I just had three wishes

I would share them all with you

For you are my Truelove

And I love you through and through


I’d wish for our health and happiness

And to always love like this

To care for each other

With continued wedded bliss


Together holding hands

We could spread our wings and fly

Over mountains and tree tops

Reaching up to touch the sky


We’d travel round the world

Spreading love every day

To every human being

We passed along our way


We’d share this love with others

And put a smile upon each face

This would make a difference

To the entire human race


This world should see our happiness

It’s contagious don’t you know

Just smile today at someone

And watch that smile grow


A smile is really catching

It puts joy in your heart

Let’s all try together

And make a brand new start

if i have all the wishes to you, not only 3 //.....

Comfort on difficult days,

Smiles when sadness intrudes,

Rainbows to follow the clouds,

Laughter to kiss your lips,

Sunsets to warm your heart,

Gentle hugs when spirits sag,

Friendships to brighten your being,

Beauty for your eyes to see,

Confidence for when you doubt,

Faith so that you can believe,

Courage to know yourself,

Patience to accept the truth,

And love to complete your life.

acaetnna profile image

I've heard that it takes 43 muscles to frown and only 17 to smile (the numbers vary), smiling is definitely more rewarding though! So glad you enjoyed it Marty, thanks for stopping by.


Kim Lynn profile image

Kim Lynn 6 years ago

Beautiful and true. Here's an email I sent to my husband helping his sister in Christ Church New Zealand. P.S. He has missed our 30th anniversary,Thanksgiving(don't blame him, I wish I could have escaped too!} and my birthday. I sent him there after the earthquake, so really it's my own fault! Here goes-

For 30 years I've loved my frog

He hopped the pond and now he's gone

Replace a love for so long perhaps only in a song

but No I could be misled

A blonde haired blue eyed love appeared

Yes I did move him ahead

The son of my son

Right now number One

Thanks, your poem reminded me of how special a great marriage is; but when frog returns he'll still have to fight for his title. For I must admit, my heart has not been idle.

acaetnna - Nice poem. I liked the sentiment expressed about what you'd do when travelling around the world, passing out all of those smiles and good will. Thank you for letting me read it.

acaetnna, this is so true, a smile is an instant cure for a troubled soul, and on top of this, it is contagious. I really practice this - When I feel negative because of any reason, I look at myself in the mirror and practice smiles until I really laugh at my silly self. And then... whalla... I feel better and ready for Life again.

I have only one wish – that all my wishes come true.

Have a wonderful Friday and weekend, acaetnna! (The 2nd of 2011!)

You know, I used to see people smile in love and i always wanted to hit it off of their faces. I never believed in it until it landed in my lap when i didnt expect it. This reminds me of how beautiful love is now that i can feel it within. Up and beautiful.
