Autumn Winds

Rookie (July 22 1993 / Sanfrancisco, California)

A Shooting Star


A shooting star
Makes it's way across the sky
A traveler in the placid night

Upon that star
Lay a million wishes
Waiting to become true

We hope
It will grant our wish
Like a genie in a bottle

We wish
And wish upon that
Incandescent ball of glowing dreams

All though
It's futile we still
Wish and hope and dream

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
