If my chance came to wish on a star,
For treasure, I would wish not.
Pearls, rubies, diamonds and emeralds,
Will not fill my heart with boundless joy or happiness.
Eternal life, I would not crave
For then I would wither away like a flower, rejected.
I would have to see too many things,
If I were to keep my eyes open for all those days gone by.
For my friends and family,
That they will live long and meaningful lives,
The thought of that is worth much more,
Than treasure and eternal life combined.
