Granted for a Lifetime

by Devlyn Williams

A wish granted to me times three…….
Peace for the free world,
Because we the people can be…
If only we the people open eyes to see,
That my first wish begins within.

Eyes and strength like an eagle,
No worries or cries,
An endless sky for miles and miles,
I fly.

And most important of them all,
Simply to love and be loved as I am
In such a way that day by day
I know my three wishes granted,
Are ones I dare not change.
