I wish…

Wishing on an Eyelash

It felt like you beckoned me

Closer, to whisper

To tell me the secret

I needed for life

I stumbled, unknowing

So eager to hear you

To learn what was missing

And make it come right.

You smiled as you told me

Your lips barely moving

The light in your eyes

Was a sparkle of fun

“You take on your finger

An eyelash you lost, and

You blow it away then

You get to make one

Quite secret, quite special

Quite perfectly lovely

Quite brim-full of wonder

Quite glorious wish.

Then if you work hard

And wait and keep hoping

One day it might maybe

Come kinda true-ish.




For Mandi, who taught me that wishing on an eyelash was a ‘thing’.

    Does Mandi do ” fingers or thumbs” or just make a wish?
