Shooting Star


If I see a shooting star
I'll be sure to make a wish
All the while I'm wishing
I'll hold my crucfix

I'll watch the star as it shoots
Across the mid-night sky
I'll relish at the beauty
As I just softly sigh

For I will be a winner
If my dream comes true
If it becomes reality
I'd share it all with you

But if my dream should falter
And come srashing to the ground
Just like that shooting star
I would not make a sound

drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
