I wish I’d see a world at peace
With harmony, not strife and war;
Where we care for one another,
And nobody is sad and poor.
I wish my school would safer be,
No playground bullies anymore;
If we forgave each other’s faults
How happy we’d all be, I’m sure.
I wish I’d see our oceans clean,
Without pollution’s ugly blight.
I wish the whales would live and thrive,
I wish for coral colours bright.
I wish, I wish, for happiness
For everyone — especially you.
If you wish with me, fingers crossed,
We might just see our wish come true.
