I Wish (a poem)

I Wish
======


I wish we had honey for breakfast
I wish we had burgers for tea
If only I chose all the food that we ate
What a wonderful day it would be.


I wish I could dress up all pretty
I wish all the children could see
If only I had all the clothes in the world
What a wonderful day it would be.


I wish we could go to the seaside
I wish we could swim in the sea
If only I had a beach to myself
What a wonderful day it would be.


I wish I had my own small kitten
I wish it could sit on my knee
If only I had lots of pets in my room
What a wonderful day it would be.


I wish I was big like my brother
I wish I was seven not three
If only I grew to the size that I want
What a wonderful day it would be


I wish I had castles to play in
I wish there were toys just for me
If only my dreams were real not pretend
What a wonderful day it would be.

  2. Paul, this is a similar style (and sentiments I think) to the I remember poem I put on my site http://bit.ly/pHpXIh. I also like your site and have posted a link to it on the writing tips tab http://bit.ly/laNMdA

    All the Best and I travel through Poole quite a lot - it's very busy and has some of the most expensive real estate in England at the moment apparently

  4. Very nice. You should put this poem to music. It would make a wonderful song for little ones to sing.
