All this I Wish Upon You

A love song.

Just to think about you brings me a joy

that could never be explained

To see your smile brings me hope

when I thought hope could never be regained

To hear your voice is to be touched by a prayer,

to be moved toward a higher source

Just to walk with you is a form of flight,

a rising up with essential force

And all this I wish upon you

All this I wish upon you now

No matter where it is I’ve gone to

I’ll make it back to you somehow

Just to say your name brings me a joy

that can never be described

To feel you near is to have a sense

that I’ve somehow, finally arrived

To hear your laughter is to be touched by a song,

a honeyed, rollicking tune

To see your eyes is to be lit up,

like the sun shining down on the moon

And all this I wish upon you

All this I wish upon you now

No matter where it is I’ve gone to

I’ll make it back to you somehow

What I want for you is what you’ve brought to me

a love so real and so complete

I want you to feel what it is for me

to see your face on a crowded street

And one fine day you’re gonna know what it is

to see yourself from behind my eyes

To feel as full of happiness

as when light fills the morning skies

And all this I wish upon you

All this I wish upon you now

No matter where it is I’ve gone to

I’ll make it back to you somehow
