I Wish

I wish that you were my beau
And to have known u thru and thru
Wish there was more to do
Then giving up on what I wish was true

I wish
To have heard your violin pierce its sad song
Through the crisp cold night air
I wish to have seen your soul opened bare 
To feel its chorus entwined right there
I wish together we would always belong
That our rivers course had not gone so wrong

I wish to hear your violins banter
My heart all a flutter
Dancing under a brazen moon
When good times upon us meet
To hear its upbeat tune
Making me want to tap my feet

I'd love to hear you ramble on
About things I know zilch about
Of what it doesn't matter
I just love to hear you amaze
The realms of knowledge I can't even count

I wish I could get to know you
And understand from where you came
That you were more to me
Than a half empty name
I wish I could hike over mountains right by your side
And see the mountain rivers flow as to hide
The days when these marvelous giants died

I wish I could have known you every single day
To have known how you inspire and irritate me in every little way

But it also does make me sad to realize
We could never lived through each other always telling these damn lies
So to sleep to go I must 
For my heart I cannot trust
For it overflows in great pain
Not an ounce of love it is to gain
But to reality I must retain
And do it is that I refrain
From calling you from my soul 
To hear my hearts call
But it is always from great heights that the mighty fall
So away I go in shame
A pointless mind made game 
That my heart did empower
It is me that is truly lame
To have hoped beyond the final hour

I'm in a dream entrapped 
Stuck in a thought yet unwrapped
Of a place not yet mapped
Tis long since the crowd watched and clapped
