Wish List

John L. Sampson


Hope for tomorrow

Endurance in time of sorrow

Hearts bent to a stranger’s cry

Blessings falling from the sky.

Soldiers quick and safe return,

Love a lesson all will learn,

Answered prayers - supply of needs

Peace in thoughts, words and deeds.

News of comfort, peace and joy,

Gifts for every girl and boy.

Lessons learned that make souls wise,

Long hellos - no more good-byes

Grace is planted with all things good,

Outstretched hands of brotherhood,

A wish list made for humanity,

Can be fulfilled in you and me.
