Aladdin's Lamp

Aladdin’s lamp floating upon the sea
Shell treasures swimming in harmony.
Breaching the surface, they touch the light
And greet the dawn, new hope in sight.
Waves of change rise to touch the blue sky
An albatross signals a boat passing by.
Look, see Aladdin’s lamp glistening here
One wish will be granted, the time is near.
The sailor crafted a wish of love
Admiring God’s work from heaven above.
The wish was really quite simple you see,
He asked for a world of tranquility.
