Poem: Wish Upon A Star

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

Wish upon a star is a poem about how he stopped believing in the magic of love. He spends his days in the devil's playground until his lips touch a precious gem. Then he wishes upon a star to make her dreams come true.

Wish Upon A Star

In the twilight of the past

he lost his faith,

no longer believing in the magic of love.


Stuck in the heavy fog

unable to find his way,

hiding secrets in the devil’s playground.


When his lips touch a precious jewel

better than his wildest fantasies,

an enchanting feeling overcomes him,

making him wish on a shooting star

so he can make her dreams come true.

Thanks for reading.

I love that he wants to make her dreams come true as much as she made his. This is the story of my life. I was disillusioned and distraught when my second husband came along and did all in his power to make my wish come true. So I do the same for him. Beautiful poem.

Blessings,

Denise
