If I could make a single wish
I know just what it'd be
I would not even have to think
My choice would be easy

There is but one thing that I want
For us to be together
If I had a second wish
I'd wish it was forever

If I found a magic djinn
Who granted wishes three
I'd turn back time to '79
And spend my life with thee

Sea,

I like it [good rhymes]..but i have a question...what is a 'djinn' in the last stanza? Is it a type or a real word?

Glad 79 was apparently a good year for u.
:-)

"Three wishes are now granted you",
the magic djinn stated.
"Don't waste them, sir, on wine and song
or empty love, elated.
A wish for health, a wish for peace,
a wish for love that's true.
Please use your wishes wisely, sir,
that's what I wish for you."

Wonderful! I liked Doreen's reply, too.
