Almost The Wish You Wished For Did Come True

almost the wish you wished for did come true
pointed out the good fairy softly
there it is under the Tree, and are you

really going to ruin Christmas
just because you can't see can you
how almost the wish you wished might

be the one you really wanted?
she waited. we unwrapped at last
the shiny paper, curling ribbons

new oh spanking new as anything
bright could be.
whatever it was I won't-

she won't I mean
tell you.
you'll just have to find out

when it happens to you!
