Fireflies / Freewrite's Prompt by @MarianneEWest

It was my wish.

And it remains my wish till today.

I wish that one day, I will have a chance to visit a firefly park at Kuala Selangor right here at my beloved country. Since college times, I heard time after time from my friends the adventure and fun they had witnessing the beautiful glimmering fireflies 'bum'.

.
The adventure was while boarding the boat at jetty, crossing the dark pitch river, and kind of spooky too, and then the spectacular view of thousands of fireflies. They did not have photo to show me as those time handphones were not so advanced yet. I was happy listening to their stories while wishing one day I will make a trip there. Wish wish wish... :)

One day... My husband said when the children are big, we can go. Haha!

Meanwhile, let me share with you this song by Owl City called "Fireflies". This was a popular song back then, and I think till today. Enjoy! I love this song veryyyyy much. 😊


Lyrics (taken from Google Search)
You would not believe your eyes
If ten million fireflies
Lit up the world as I fell asleep
'Cause they fill the open air
And leave teardrops everywhere
You'd think me rude but I would just stand and stare
I'd like to make myself believe that planet earth turns slowly
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep
'Cause everything is never as it seems
'Cause I'd get a thousand hugs
From ten thousand lightning bugs
As they tried to teach me how to dance
A foxtrot above my head
A sock hop beneath my bed
A disco ball is just hanging by a thread (thread, thread)
I'd like to make myself believe that planet earth turns slowly
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep
'Cause everything is never as it seems (when I fall asleep)
Leave my door open just a crack
Please take me away from here
'Cause I feel like such an insomniac
Please take me away from here
Why do I tire of counting sheep
Please take me away from here
When I'm far too tired to fall asleep
To ten million fireflies
I'm weird cause I hate goodbyes
I got misty eyes as they said farewell (said farewell)
But I'll know where several are
If my dreams get real bizarre
'Cause I saved a few and I keep them in a jar (jar, jar)
I'd like to make myself believe that planet earth turns slowly
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep
'Cause everything is never as it seems (when I fall asleep)
I'd like to make myself believe that planet earth turns slowly
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep
'Cause everything is never as it seems (when I fall asleep)
