Wishes on a Prayer

I.

I rubbed a lamp today

And made three wishes

One, that this was all a nightmare

Two, that I’d finally wake up

Three, that I’d never have such a dream again.

II.

I lit a candle today

And made three requests

One, for strength to get through this

Two, for healing and restoration

Three, for a miracle.

III.

I said a prayer today

Three prayers actually

Our Father, because it’s all inclusive

Hail Mary, because I’m bringing out the big guns

Glory Be, so hopefully one of the Three would finally listen.

IV.

I went to the crossroads today

Thought I’d make a deal

Not sure how much of my soul I’d have to sell

Or how long before I’d have to pay the piper

But it sure as hell is sounding better by the second.
