Wish Upon A Firefly

Where are all the fireflies
that flew down from the sky,
those little stars with wings
that heard my wishes from up high?

I kept them for a while
in a jar with holes - for air,
then sent them back above
to carry home my prayer.

Where are all the fireflies
that twinkled in the night...
where are the dreams they carried...
are they lost and out of sight?

They had pieces of my heart
that were to be returned to me.
I'm waiting still - I'm waiting
in hope that fireflies I'll see.
