    (a little ditty most serious)


    wonder if wishes had wishes
    what would they wish for?
    wonder if less ever considered
    being anything more?
    wonder whether the woods
    ever knew whose they were?
    or if robin knew little red
    would he make merry with her?

    well wishes are horses ~dammit!
    so this beggar shall ride
    and further, I'll state
    with all foolishness aside

    I've wished for the moment
    and prayed for the day
    when I would be perfectly
    able to say

    "I love and I miss you"
    (yes, straight to your face)
    Your friendship is something
    I'll never replace

    wonder if my wish knows the way
    wonder how much longer i'll have to wait
    wonder how many times I'll have to say it
    wonder if my destination has my map
    wonder
