Gathering Together

The wish


I saw a star fall from the sky

I closed my eyes to wish

The moment of quiet, eyes shut tight

A time not to be missed.


I wished for peace and happiness

For all who walk this earth,

For hungry tummies to be full,

Children to laugh with mirth.


The pain to stop for prisoners

Locked in a foreign land,

But most of all, I wished that humans

Could love and understand.
