Wishing Well


Take my mind to freedom town,
grant me that last bliss,
far away from all past downs,
surely I've now earned this.

Once I was the partner, 
now I'm just the dad,
one time I was the carer, 
please let me lose the sad.

Sure I'll find a bump or two,
roads to heaven aren't always true
I only ask a fair passage there,
with the one for whom I care.

Sometimes I felt the pain would win,
why so much, what was the sin?
Fair is truly blond at night,
could I have given up the fight...

But now the years have rolled away
and somehow I've survived to see this day.
Can I plan for wonders just in case
our luck will hold till we reach that place.

Fingers crossed as I type these lines,
have I been here too many times?
Fissions and fusions invade my brain,
there's so much to lose, so much to gain.

I know that I've been granted,
so many lucky breaks,
good as well as bad ones,
that's what life gives and takes.

Taken on the whole though,
it seems the choice is now to be mine,
to want to break away from those 
past heartaches, that's no crime.

Let's hold our hands together,
and pray all will be well,
Let's hold our hands together
and throw coins in the wishing well
