I wish I could touch the sky
And see air
And live forever
I could be a giant
And a good person
And be at the White House
And be famous
I could be stronger than everybody
A cute girl
And eat ice cream all day
Today, tomorrow, and every day

I wish I was on the soft sand on the beach.
I wish I had a friend.
I wish I had a crazy pussycat that drove me around the room.
I wish I had a hippopotamus for Christmas. Only a hippopotamus will do.
I wish I was trapped on the sunshiny beach.
I wish I had a snake that scared the whole class.
I wish I was a beehive with bees.
I wish I was a river zigzagging with love.
I wish I was a sunflower shaking my seeds.
I wish I could ride on a dandy butterfly.
I wish I could swing on a flower vine.
I wish I could go into a deep, dark forest.
I wish a volcano exploded.
I wish things were different for me.
I love life.
I wish I were pretty.
