A Question Just for You

Today I wished upon a star,

To be able to smile,

To be able to live.

To be with a happy family,

To not be afraid of tomorrow,

To be everything I’m not.

To wish is my hope, my salvation, my plead for an escape.

I’ll escape,

If only today…

If only this minute…

If only for  these few short seconds …

Will you come with me?
