I Wish

by Matt Carroll   Jul 4, 2017

I wish I had the words, the means to bring you peace
To show you light beyond these troubles, that the chaos soon will cease
I wish I had the power to bring a light into the dark
To bring fire to your eyes and reignite your heart's true spark

I wish that I could take your hand and lead you through these trials
To take away your sorrows and replace it all with smiles
I wish when you looked in the mirror, you saw just what I see
The sheer awe and amazement of just who you've come to be

My hope for you is endless, I just feel that you should know
I'm here for you until the day you ask that I should go
Come hell or highest water, no matter what stands in your way
You'll never have to fight alone
For by your side, I'll stay
