3 Things to Wish For

If I had but three wishes
What would I wish for
Not all the riches in the world
Or a basket full of stars.

I would ask not for gold
Not a million pounds in the bank
I would wish not for diamonds
Not fame, fortune nor rank.

My first wish would bring
Peace, love and joy
To me and all around
No hunger, pain nor cry.

My next wish would see
My boy in good health and cheer
A long, wise and loved life
Wanting for nothing, never a fear.

For my last wish
I want for nothing more 
Than a loving hand to hold
When I am grey and old.

If a genie in a lamp
Is listening in to me
Here are my wishes
One, two and three.
