A Single Wish

What would I do if it was bestowed upon me?
Use it wisely, could I save humanity
Would I be selfish, and hope for wealth
What good is money if I lost my health?

Could I save the Planet, turn all to green
No natural disasters would ever again be seen
What of the animals, don’t they deserve a chance?
To survive naturally, no death from mans lance

Would I cure all disease, no more pain?
I will cause overpopulation, not the earths gain
Would I rid our race of all the malice?
No more wars, living in an Ivory Palace

Should I make the Moon shine ever more bright?
No more darkness, just light, bringing sight
What of compassion, could I create this desire?
Would it banish the hate, rid us of our ire

So many choices, so many just reasons
Bring out the Sun, change all the seasons
Make the flora flower throughout the year
Bring happiness to all, no more shedding of tear

I am too indecisive the choice is not free
I now know for me this was not meant to be
I shall wrap it in a box, and send it to one so true
Have I told you today that I love you

banana Love A Single Wish. Thanks for your comment on my Valentine poem. Since I have read the remark I have deleated some of the information as I realised it seemed a little negative.

I've loved and cried, and been loved too. I'm happy in myself and quite single..... And lovin it. Happy Valentines heart beating banana:
