The poet hopes that wishes come true for all children, whether they are wishes made at a birthday party or upon a falling star or the ones made by parents for their children that are like a benediction.
I Hope Yours Come True!
Before mom cuts your cake
in the midst of festive cheer,
these are dreams of hope you make
at a party every year.
Or, you can make them in a well,
or upon a falling star;
but they're secrets so you can't tell,
anybody what they are!
Oh, and just so you're aware,
your parents make them too!
Paired with a protective prayer;
they make theirs for you.
