One evening I sat alone

On the verandah

And looked up towards the sky.

All of a sudden,

A shooting star passed by.

I thought for a moment –

What shall I wish?

I wondered and wondered.

Then, a beautiful thought

Came to my mind.

I felt as if God said something

In my ears, silently.

I closed my eyes and wished –

Let there be no chaos

And confusion anywhere

But only happiness, love

And peace everywhere.
