I wish there were mines of laughter instead
And hearts were made of gold
Everyone will have their own
And precious still it would be to behold.
I wish time was made of chewing gum
To stretch it long and long
We would then always find the time
To sing our favorite song.
I wish there were floods
When tears flew freely, and not when rains lashed
I wish the fire of hunger was visible from far and wide
Every time someone's hope was dashed.
I wish we all could view
Every time there was a true love's kiss
I wish we knew each time
Greed took over bliss.
I wish happiness was like air
Never ending and free
And I wish life was like
An ever blooming tree.
