Wishes

The following piece was presented at Jersey City Writers’ genre event – Recess: Children Stories for Adults. Please enjoy.

 

I would sift through an endless field of a million clovers for the one with four leaves to give this wish to you.

I would day for ages and eons to find the biggest wishbone fossil in history to give that wish to you.

I would rub lamp after lamp until my fingers were sore and callused to give this wish to you.

I would brave November’s gusts to find the last dandelion of summer to give that wish to you.

I would stay up for a thousand sleepless nights to catch a falling star to give this wish to you.

I would weather a mighty hurricane for the first glimpse of a rainbow to give that wish to you.

I would walk block upon block mile upon mile for a single penny to give this wish to you.

I would live to be a hundred and I would use my last breath to blow out 100 candles to give that wish to you.

I would do all that and more because my every wish came true with you.
