“I Wish”

By Daniella Gavarrete

I wish I could help the Philippines

I see the children get food from the garbage

I wish I could be a cook
And cook for them

I wish I could be a doctor
And cure them

I wish I could be a construction worker
And build them new houses

I wish I could be a fashionista
And give them clothes and shoes

I wish I could be a clown
And make them laugh when they are sad

I wish I could be a mechanic
And make them new cars

I wish I could be a fairy
And give them everything.

(Music: Jimmy Smith "1-2-3")
