Even for a Day

 

Even for a day I want to feel how precious I am to you
to know that you think of me the way I do you,
to know that you miss me when I’m away,
to know that you can’t bear the thought of me not talking to you.

Even for a day I want to feel how happy you are with me,
to know that I’m the first person you think of when you wake up,
to know that I’m your last thought before you sleep,
to know that I’m the one you dream of every night.

Even for a day I want to feel what it’s like to be loved by you,
to know that you’ll wrap me in your arms and hold me tight,
to know that you’ll whisper the words I long to hear,
to know that you’ll give me the kind of love that I’m hoping for.

I Want

 

I want to be the first smile you’ll see
and the lips you want to kiss.
I want to be the one who’ll fix you breakfast
and pour you a cup of coffee.
I want to be the one who waves to you goodbye
when you’re off to work.
I want to be the one who calls you from time to time
telling you how much I’ve missed you.
I want to be the reason you come home in a rush
not just because dinner is served but because I am
your dessert.
I want to be the one who tucks you at night
and wraps you in my arms holding you tight.
I want to be the one who chases away your nightmares
and replaces them with better dreams.
I want to be the one who will hold your hands,
even when they are lined with age.
I want to be the one who’ll still be able to
bring that smile on your face,
even when you no longer remember who I am.
And I want to be the one you’ll miss the most
when I am no longer by your side.
