Had My Wishes Come True

On Life and Living


I'd be a well-known writer
(but alas I sit here penning this)


My children would be well behaved always
(instead of bickering in my background)


I'd be living in lovely Lancaster County, Pa.
(yet here I am still in N.J.)


The planes on September 11'th would be only a nightmare
(sadly, there really is a 'Ground Zero')


I would have no regrets to mention
(nevertheless...they do exist)


My body would have no afflictions
(however, pain is my constant companion)


...Had my wishes come true
(though, there's always tomorrow)
