The Sketch

I know a girl
that lives in a pearl
I've seen her once.

She was sitting on a bench,
feeding ducks beside a lake
“The lake of wishes”, full of coins

If I could just swim through all these wishes
Maybe I‘d find out what she misses.

Maybe I’d wish her wish was mine.
But, of course,
you cannot make yours
..other people’s wishes.
That would be odd.

I know a girl
who lives in a pearl
I' ve seen her throwing her wish into that lake
The coin, ooops!, slipped out of her hand
Her wish now lives in “no man’s land”

I drew a sketch, a view of the girl
I drew her living in a pearl.

..just some more questions..

..have you ever ..lost a wish ?
how many coins ..are there left in your pocket ?
could you give me ?
may I borrow ..your wish ?
..really odd, huh..-
