A Wishing Poem

Little acorns make big trees

Pussywillows make me sneeze

Guess the world needs both of these

But I need you

•*¨*•.¸¸♥ ¸¸.•*¨*•

Little minnows make big fish

Peas and carrots make a dish

If I could make just one big wish

I'd wish you

•*¨*•.¸¸♥ ¸¸.•*¨*•

I believe in wishing wells

Willows weep, and daisies tell

Falling stars, and skies of blue

I believe that dreams come true

•*¨*•.¸¸♥ ¸¸.•*¨*•

Blue jean sneakers

Home made swings

Flowers blooming in the spring

Little children need these things

And I need you

•*¨*•.¸¸♥ ¸¸.•*¨*•

      Love the sweet comments....From birth to death, it is the Holy part of us that gives and receives love. It is a very simple gift and the most treasured.
