When I wish upon a star

Star light, star bright, first star I see tonight, wish I may, wish I might, have the wish, I wish tonight...The twinkling ball of light we've so many times wished upon has brought us nothing. When was the last time a star wish has come true? A true wish, a wish from the heart, a wish that you've thought about for a long time and not only want but desperately need. We are taught as children to hope and dream, but no one ever taught us how to deal with life when our hopes and dreams only let us down. I have never been told how to cure a broken heart, how to mend a torn friendship, or how to bandage a crushed dream. Of all the lessons, over all the years, not a single person has shared these secrets. Is it time to wonder whether anyone really knows?
