The Wish

Poem By Bill Simmons

I took a penny and threw it in a pond
I had made me a wish
But the penny came back, it was thrown just like a rock
I looked, it was thrown by a fish!

I said, Hey, what are you doing. That was my wish!
He said, Us fish, we have wishes too
I wish that you were a worm, a great big fat worm!
And I wish that I could eat you!
(I ran away!)

Unconditional Love

Your puppy licked my hand today
He doesn't know that you are gone
I reached down, he came to me
He ran right into my arms
