Wishing on a star.

Starlight, star bright,

The first star I see tonight,

I wish I may, I wish I might,

Have the wish I wish tonight.

For as long as I can remember I have only ever wished for one thing on a star or at any other wish making opportunity. It is the same wish every time; it is ever constant and faithful. This unbroken wish has to this day always come true, ever since I was little. I’d tell you what it is but I’m afraid that it will stop coming true (seriously!!  I do not care how childish that is) and my wish upon a star it is an important part of my life and who I am.

I chose it because when I was younger I believed I understood the value of a wish, if you wasted a wish separately on lots of different things the magic would be divided and less potent. I thought about it very carefully, very particularly and chose one wish that I believed was achievable and would make life wonderful now and forever. My wish is about something I worried about (and still do,) something that was so big, so huge that I knew I couldn’t manage it all on my own and would need help. It wasn’t frivolous like wishing for a horse and it wasn’t silly like wishing for good grades (you could work hard in class for those or ask for help), it was a very important big person wish. It is the wish I work hard for in my life every minute, every hour and every day; determined that it will always come true.

I’m not going to ask what your wish is, but I will ask if you have ever had a wish come true?

  2. Every night, I see it through my bedroom window and I always make a wish. I think wishes do come true, but they come true when we are ready for them. It might take a while, but when the time is right, they will 🙂
