Beggars Would Ride
If wishes were horses beggars would ride
Prince Charming would come on the evening tide
Yet better than 1,000 wishes are prayers
Lifted in faith to a God who cares
One simple prayer brought Prince Charming to me
Thirty years later I look back and see
The wasted wishes that brought me naught
How prayer was the source of blessings I’ve got
So offer your wishes to the stars above
I’ll say my prayers to the great God of love
Today is my 30th Anniversary. The prompt at dVerse Poets Pub was to write about wishes. Well, wishes never got me anything, but my husband’s prayer to meet a nice girl he could marry the night we met brought us together.
Happy Anniversary! I agree that prayer is the most powerful avenue for receiving good things. My hubby and I have been married for 43 years now.
Congratulation! I pray you enjoy many years to come.
Congratulations and happy anniversary. It will be 30 years for us next July.
Happy Anniversary to you both! Now I pray for my sons to “meet a nice girl” 😀
I pray that often, too. 🙂
SMiLes.. the greaTest wishes
and prayers the same for
homeless Jesus’ i have met
on the side of the road are simply
to be fed and give/share love.. and as the
who gift the wish
and prayer the same
for food.. the essence is
the light and truth where
wishes and prayers are only
of the greatest
gifts of charity

jew.. servant or free..
woman or man no more..
as wishes and prayers become
essence of God’s of Nature’s higher
potential in all of us.. now.. smiles.. all my wishes
come true as i have 100% faith.. hope.. and belief..
never less than luke hot.. per se.. noW more true..
my friend but
God who lives within..
where ye of little faith never ever exists now..
where Happy anniversary is always now for
brothers and sisters who share the root and vine
as essence of TrUth and liGht..
but yes.. sure2.. Happy Anniversary in terms
of numbers to both you and your husband too..:)
Amen. This is so true and so well and simply written. Happy anniversary, and thank you!
Happy Anniversary. Our prayers usually are our wishes. Love your poem.
The power of prayer indeed. And Happy Anniversary!! 🎉❤️
Such a wish……one from the genie. Nice one there.
wishing a Very Happy Anniversary Linda…May you always be happy…
I love this:
“Well, wishes never got me anything, but my husband’s prayer to meet a nice girl he could marry the night we met brought us together.”
Happy anniversary. 🙂
Just love it! A true love story–spiritually and maritally. Best wishes for your anniversary and many years ahead of you.
Love this! Happy Anniversary!
Congratulations to you both! Sending you wishes and prayers for many more years of happiness. I really enjoyed your poem. A good reminder of the power of prayer and I respect your feelings on wishes. Perhaps we can agree on the power of positive thinking, bringing good thoughts and deeds to life. 🙂
Happy Anniversary Linda 😀 Wonderful write ❤
happy anniversary, Linda! I’m so pleased you got your Prince Charming 😉
Happy anniversary! Very nice rhyme, and fun to read.
Happy Happy Anniversary to you and your hubby. <3
I love this, Linda. I do both. 😉
I love this poem. But you know, wishes aren’t always futile and sometimes the answer to prayer is no. Happy anniversary to you and to your beloved!
My initial thought was to start with something my mom used to say: “Wish in one hand, spit in the other, and see which one fills up first.” But I decided that wasn’t as poetic. 😉
Sure it is. My mom used to say the same thing. I still made wishes.
Oh I know this is were it would take you… but maybe if all wished for things of good it would be a tad bit better.
That may be true.
