Acknowledgment: Ateneo de Manila University Christmas lantern display
Wish upon a star come true in technology;
at home, on the street, on the campus too.
in cafes and malls, shining all around freely,
from high rise, over the metropolis's view.
Wish upon a star come true in greed and thirst,
dying in embers when failed and gone;
in bold discoveries even probing the universe
to cinders before man's plan has began.
Wish upon a star come true only in dream,
up, up in the sky, calling, smiling,
and in the pure and stout heart its realm,
always shining, leading those deserving. ~
