In 1997, I wrote and produced a play to raise funds for our local chapter of The Make-a-Wish Foundation. As a theme song for the production, I wrote the following song, which was widely used for other Make-a-Wish fundraisers.

She looks like a doll, in that big leather chair,
A doll with a sad little smile.
And she can't understand what she's doing there
She'd like to go play for awhile.
But her momma won't let her, and she wonders why
she can't be like the rest of her friends.
And the Doctor said something that made her mom cry, so she drifts to her world of pretend.

She pretends that she's well and the hurt's gone away
and she runs and she plays in the sun.
She'll be a cowgirl, ridin' horses all day,
and a puppy would be lots of fun.
Maybe she'll dance or act or sing,
there's lots of things she'd like to do.
Given the chance, she could be anything she set her little heart to.

Make a wish, (won't somebody help her)
make a wish, ( the day's growing near)
When all she'll have left are her hopes and her dreams
of soft summer days, bright stars and moonbeams
In this land of plenty does someone exist
Who'll make something happen when she makes a wish.

He's just turned eight years old and he's not aware
that he'll probably never turn nine
his folks want to give him the very best care,
but the money is so hard to find.
He dreams that someday he'll fly to the stars, or ride on the prairie all day
He'd like to play baseball and play the guitar
or watch his favorite football team play.

Make a wish,(won't somebody help him)
make a wish,(it's time to begin)
to open our hearts, our souls and our minds
Let's all work together and I know we will find
ways to show love to those who'll be missed
Let's make something happen, when they make a wish.

All writings by Frank Humphrey should be removed from this site. He is a confessed pedophile, and has recently committed suicide to avoid prosecution. Check for the news listings from the week of June 22, 2012. He confessed to his crimes and then killed himself. He deserves no positive attention whatsoever as his victims will never see the correct justice he so deserved

This song is expressing what many people have and are going through! I love it, it is sad but so real.

Great Job!

I enjoyed this poem and can certainly relate. I have a severely disabled son and was blessed to be able to take him to Disney through the Make-A-Wish Foundation. It is good to know people like you and your community exist because the emotional toll and lack of funds is unimagineable.

I found the synopsis of Hands of Fate to be quite interesting. The images were very strong and I want to learn more about the beautiful little girl and the 'leathered' man. Good job, looking forward.............

I really enjoy your poetry. I, too have done many a fundraiser and worked with Make a Wish and the Ronald Mac Donald House. It sure makes me a heap of friends and enriches other's hearts as well.
Thank you for all you do. I, for one, appreciate you.
