When I Wish Upon A Star

I learnt something this weekend - quite simply I stink at scheduling posts, because I scheduled this to post on Saturday but messed up the dates. Ah well! So here it is now, short, sweet and simple.

As a mother, it's true to say that my world revolves around my children. When they're hurting, I'm hurting and when they're celebrating, I'm celebrating. They inspire me to be a better person, to stretch, to grow, to learn. They also teach me that while I can guide and advise them, that invariably I must also set them free to stretch and grow and learn. I must take a step back to enable them to become the most amazing individuals they can be.

I searched the internet for a poem to sum up what I was feeling and I couldn't find anything remotely like what I wanted. So here is what I wrote - a poem for my boys.

I wish upon a star
for a world free of pain and suffering
A world where rainbows
colour my world

I wish upon a star
for a world full of love and sharing
A world where moonbeams
touch the ground

I wish upon a star
for a world where everyone is equal
A world where raindrops
shine like crystals

I wish upon a star
for a world that shows compassion
A world where shooting stars
fill the night time sky

I wish upon a star
for a world that knows integrity
A world where blossoms
line the path ahead

I wish upon a star
for a world that’s full of freedom
A world where our dreams
become reality

I wish upon a star, for a better world for you and I

Cheers, Fi

It seems to me we can never give up longing and wishing while we are thoroughly alive. There are certain things we feel to be beautiful and good, and we must hunger after them ~ George Eliot
