Divination

Divination

 

If I could read tea leaves
I would weave magic
Framed in the silvery
Warmth of my wishes
and hopes for you
my baby

 

If I could read palms
I would find lines that
Promise love prosperity and
Happiness with wishes- fruitful
And bountiful for you
My baby

 

If I could divine your
Birth chart, I would
Will the planets to move favorably
eschewing malefic glances, throwing
Benign avuncular looks your way
My baby

 

If I could ensure a happy life
By encasing your slim fingers
With lucky birthstone rings
I would plunder and buy up the
Best of  best on the market for you
My baby

 

If I could change the future
Making it the rosiest for you by
Going the Feng Shui way
With our home’s makeover
I would in a heart beat
My baby

If I could my baby
I would give up my life
Gladly for you to make
You happy but, do know
Life is what you will make
Of it all on your own
