The Magic Door (poem)

Updated on February 28, 2016

As we were going to the store

There was a man outside the door

He asked before we went inside

If we had time to see much more

-

Now time, it seemed, was on our side

The man was filled with so much pride

We told him we would gladly share

The secret he appeared to hide

-

The store doors opened with a flare

But inside now was nothing there

Just go inside and use your head

A clue like that required a stare

-

Inside we thought of what he said

Then, words across the ceiling spread

It didn’t take us long to see

To think of what we need instead

-

A car a house a money tree

A world of peace for you and me

A truck to take all this stuff home

And while we’re here let’s eat for free

-

As children our dreams let to roam

Here underneath our wishing dome

And dreaming, it went on and on

What once was clear turned into foam

-

Now left in smoke; with all else gone

And there you were as clear as dawn

The only wish I ever knew

And to your magic I was drawn

-

The man still waiting. “Are you through

So little time; so much to do”

But time and things worth wishing for

They all begin and end with you
