When I was very small Mama told me To look up into heaven Wish upon a star Make sure its the brightest one of all.
She said to me In a gentle voice "Little love, all you have to say "Is 'I wish I may, I wish I might, have this wish toinight' And all your wishes will come true."
Mama, I wish you wouldn't Have lied to me so...
I never told her even then How the voice inside my head Not of another source But of my own accord Was so rotten to me then.
It told me all the time How little I mattered To this big world of ours To this endless universe of His.
I felt a void in my heart For I have nothing to offer To this big world of ours To this universe of His.
Not once did I have The desire in my heart Burning with an endless fire For another to claim me as his For me to claim as mine.
Not once did I have The instinct in my being With an endless maternal love For another claim me as theirs For me to claim as mine.
Not once did I ever have The knowing in my mind Of what I wanted for my future For a path to claim me as its For me to claim it as mine.
Not once did I ever have A purpose guiding my soul To guide me towards the light For Haven to claim me with its might. For me told onto its glorious light.
Despair filled my heart For I felt like I don't belong anywhere Nor do I have a reason to be here I'm nothing more than a broken piece One that can never be fixed.
All I can do in this world Is tell you how much I believe in you When you are in disarray I want to be the voice of courage in you.
I say with all my heart How much I believe in you Because I wish I may, I might I might Believe in myself at least once in this life.
