I often wish I could expand
my Wisdom like a rubber band
so I might better understand
the mysteries the Lord has planned...
I wish I could increase my Cheer
and shift it into second gear―
I'd swap my smile for every tear
until all heartaches disappear...
I sometimes wish my Faith would grow
like rising loaves of kneaded dough
so my impatient need to know
would learn to travel with the flow...
I wish I could enlarge my Love
to fill my heart like hand in glove
so I might please the Lord above
by loving those He's thinking of...
My final wish is prolonged Peace
to soothe my soul like quilted fleece
and make my daily trials decrease
until these days of hardship cease...
And if the heavens hear my plea
and help bestow these things on me,
my mind and spirit might agree
to live in hallowed harmony.
