If Wishes Were Ponies

“May I please have a pony?”
I asked when I was three
and mom and dad just smiled
at me and answered, “Well, we’ll see.”

“May I please have a pony?”
I asked when I was ten
and mom and dad just smiled
at me and said, “We’ll see.” – again

“May I please have a pony?”
I asked at seventeen
and mom and dad just smiled
at me – I knew they weren’t so keen

Now I am grown and married
with a daughter who is three
and when she asks I smile at her
“Maybe next year, yes I’ll see.”

  1. Ha. I am SO bad about this. Well, with a pony, I think we kind of have to say “no.” But so many of the other things, we need to just say “yes” to. Especially when it involves our time and affection as opposed to our pocketbooks. ๐Ÿ™‚
