My Wish

I hold your hand every day.... And have yet to feel your touch.... I have kissed your lips a thousand times.... Still their taste is unknown to me.... Each night I lay my head upon your chest.... But I do not know the sound of your heart.... I have seen our passion while making love.... Only to be denied the wondrous sensations that only lovers share.... So I ask myself.... Are you real or just a fantasy? We have shared our thoughts, our hopes, our dreams Together we have laughed and cried We’ve tasted the bitters that life had to offer And taken them all in stride We’ve traveled your mountains of rock and stone Crossed your deserts of blazing heat Survived the raging waters that rushed us And swept us from our feet We followed the path you chose for us Gained wisdom, strength and pride So why have you forsaken us And denied the love inside We have become one in so many ways Joined by a special bond Yet our life, our love, our future Lies uncertain within the great beyond I long for him, he longs for me So full of love that we could burst Let us drink from your heavenly cup And quench the endless thirst Oh Dear Father I beg of you Please hear my selfish plea Grant us this single wish Make US a reality
