Wish Maker

Blew candles on my cake

when I was a youngster

Closed both eyes, made a wish

but just can’t remember


Dropped a dime in the well

a couple years later

Closed both eyes, made a wish

don’t even remember


Skimmed a rock on the pond

when I was much older

Shut my eyes, made a wish

this one I remember


I wished for my wife

her health was a stranger

But it wasn’t to be

that much I remember

Dreams and schemes

and hand-held machines

are words that lie on paper

But the hand you hold

the love that’s gold

helps the pain feel much safer

There’s no guarantees

from the wise oak trees

to prevent what’s coming later

Enjoying life here

each day of the year

seems to be the real wish maker

Skimmed a rock on the pond

just after I lost her

Closed my eyes, didn't wish

here’s what I remember


The life of love shared

was a journey together

Now I close both eyes

and always remember


Dreams and schemes

and hand-held machines

are words that lie on paper

But the hand you hold

the love that’s gold

helps the pain feel much safer

There’s no guarantees

from the wise oak trees

to prevent what’s coming later

Enjoying life here

each day of the year

seems to be the real wish maker


I always remember

I always remember

A life of love shared

is a journey together
