⋆ ★ ⋆

when i wish upon a star

the star and i conspire

i always ask,  not for me,

but for my heart’s desire

i cannot tell you what i request

or my wish would not come true

i can tell you that every time

my heart’s desire is you

“When You Wish Upon A Star”   Louis Armstrong

perhaps since the earliest days of  humankind’s existence,  we have looked up to the stars and realized they are magical,  and aren’t wishes based on magic?

 nursery rhyme ~

star light,  star bright

first star i see tonight

i wish i may

i wish i might

have this wish

i wish tonight

“When You Wish Upon A Star”   Louis Armstrong

lyrics~


When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires
Will come to you

If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do

Fate is kind
She brings to those who love
The sweet fulfillment of
Their secret longing

Like a bolt out of the blue
Fate steps in and sees you through
Mama, when you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true

Fate is kind
She brings to those who love
The sweet fulfillment of
Their secret longing

Like a bolt out of the blue
Fate steps in and sees you through
Baby, when you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true

When you wish upon those stars
Makes no difference who you are
Your dreams come true
