Wish You Were Here

I wish you were here,
Whispering in my ear,
Words that you’d invented,
For my heart intended.

Wish you were here soon,
Rising like a full moon,
Casting away the darkness,
Wiping out the sadness.

Wish you were here now,
Pronouncing a new kind of vow,
Teaching me how to live again,
Learning how to love again.

Wish you were here with me,
Inventing new ways to be,
Discovering new countries,
Launching new galaxies.

Wish you were here, my dove,
Merging souls, my love,
For this day could very well,
Be my last one in hell.

I traveled my life without moving,
The world passed, but I was not looking,
Too caught in my little sphere,
Oh! God! I wish you were here!
