I rubbed a lamp and a gene appeared.
I said, "Wishes?" He said, "Three."
I told him three wishes would be great,
But one is all I need.
I wish I was invisible
I'd walk among the stars,
Listen to their whispered words,
Find out what's on their hearts.
I'd tread softly and wouldn't get too near
for the light could hurt my eyes,
But I'd get close enough to a group of them
To separate truths from lies.
And they wouldn't even know I was there
So their spectrums would never change
And I could find out which ones saw me
And which ones didn't even know my name.
Then I'd zero in on the brightest star;
The one I'd look for in the sky,
The one I thought had fallen for me
Until I saw it last night.
I'd see if it looked for me every night
The way I stil look for it
Because deep down I'm really hoping
I'm not alone in this.
The gene just stared at me
Nodding at all of this.
Finally he said, "Is that all?" And I said,
"That's my only wish."
