    I kept making wishes,
    In hopes that they may come true.

    I kept my optimism,
    Despite the trials I constantly went through.

    I kept my faith, my hope,
    Because within my heart I knew.

    One day there’d be you…
    One day there’d be you.

    I didn’t know when, nor where,
    Believe me I had no clue,

    I just prayed for the day,
    When gray skies change to blue.

    And then I counted on my good fortune,
    Because it was long over due.

    Then there was you…
    Indeed, then there was you.

    I knew this was special,
    The moment I started to pursue.

    I knew this would last,
    The way it blossomed and it grew.

    You helped me see, helped me feel,
    The meaning of love so true.

    And for that I am blessed,
    And forever will be grateful to you.​

    FAITH+HOPE=GRATITUDE,GOD WILL PROVIDE!

    Although we may feel that our dreams and wishes may seem trite
    in the normal scheme of God's great plan they may not even seem
    right. But, he has promised the faithful that if we remain just that...
    That "He would grant us the desires of our hearts"! Isn't that what
    wishes are? Our hearts desire! Beautiful scribe poet! Simply beautiful!

    BLESSINGS ON YA HOUSE!
