Secret Wishes (poem)

Amid the warmth and comfort of his home

A child enjoys the company of love

With time to spare to let warm wishes roam

What unknown void could he be dreaming of


While just outside a child in bitter cold

Has learned to put his childish dreams aside

His daily pangs and hungers make him old

His wishes give his tears a place to hide


Twas there again that two best friends did greet

To share the fare which filled their empty day

Twas there again true meaning found retreat

While wiser hearts had grander things to say


Twas there they swore their wishes to renew

To prove that wishes really can come true
