A Wish With Wings
By: Kelli Aardal Goin
The news that no parent wants to hear,
Their child has a terminal illness and isn’t guaranteed a year.
The hospital visits become a common affair,
Their child’s story they are often asked to share.
Stress begins to take its toll,
Each family member having to play a different role.
Prayers go out each and every night,
That their child’s future would look more bright.
A Wish With Wings learns of the child,
Ask for their dreams to be compiled.
Puts together a magical trip,
With the help of some sponsorship.
Makes sure it’s perfect in every way,
So they’ll always be able to reflect upon this day.
When their child got to live their dream,
With happiness they clearly did beam.
Building memories they’ll cherish so deep in their heart,
Not even death can tear them apart.
