Mahfooz Ali (28 October / Lucknow (U.P.) India)
Falling Star: wishes to come true
I wish upon a falling star,
And wonder who is not so far...
The one I long for when I sleep,
The one I want to hold and keep.
I wish that, oh, so near,
So when I cry he will wipe my tears.
And when I fall down,
He will pick me up,
And always be there to cheer me up.
I hope when he stares straight into my eyes,
He will promise, 'I won't cheat, I won't lie.'
I wish that he will always stay
And never go too far away.
I wish he will never leave me, until I die,
Never purposely make me want to cry.
