My One Great Wish

I long to see a smile upon your face,

To hear the joyous laughter that you make.

With you the world is such a happy place.

 

One look from you my falling world will brace.

You’ll hold me steady; I will never shake.

I long to see a smile upon your face.

 

When you return, the world shall fill with grace;

All hate and anger slumber, not to wake.

With you the world is such a happy place.

 

When I’m in pain, and life I cannot face,

You will be here, so that my heart won’t break.

I long to see a smile upon your face.

 

You are my sun, my light in all of space,

And when you come, your light will heal my ache.

With you the world is such a happy place.

 

Together then, your heart with mine will pace;

Our happiness and joy, the deepest lake.

I long to see a smile upon your face.

With you the world is such a happy place.
