MY BOX OF WISHES
If I were given three wishes
I would keep them in a box
For presently, I am happy
So I could keep my box locked.
I would not wish for money
It is only there to spend
Happiness, I have plenty
Sharing with family and friends
My health is good enough
Just age related I fear.
I have been happy and sad
But God is always near.
With my dear husband
I have travelled a lot
I have laughed and Iíve cried
Yet Iím grateful, for what I have got.
I have everything I need
At this present time
Time to give and time to share
With those Grandchildren of mine
But as I walk these earthly roads
My God is by my side
And if I need those wishes
He will help me to decide.
