For every moment I’ve wished upon a star
Someone else wished something bad.
Every time I found happiness
I also found myself quite sad.

For every night I cried myself to sleep
I had a night of complete bliss.
For every day I believed in a dream
I had a brilliant near miss.

Every time I wanted forever
They’d seemingly walk away.
The promise now is the next one
Will most surely, stay.

Every time I believed in my path
It seemed to take me off course.
Every time I heard something incredulous
I was told to consider the source.

For every moment I seemingly wasted
I had a brilliant moment of peace.
Every time I was told I couldn’t have any
I always managed to get a piece.

Every time I made a wish
Upon a beautiful star
I knew it would come true quickly
Because it didn’t have to travel very far.
