I wish I were the petal of a flower
Which runs down your cheek and skims your neck.
I wish I were the sun which lies on your skin,
I would caress your shoulder, I would not let you freeze.
I wish my eyes lightened up with you.
I wish I smelt your scent, oh it’s true!
I wish I felt your heartbeat going through me.
I wish I were not afraid to say what I feel.
I wish I were the roof of your room
To shelter you when you sleep, to stay with you.
I wish I were the glass to be skimmed by your fingers,
To be held by your hand, to die on your lips.
I wish I had the voice
To cry to the world how much I love you.
I wish I had the heart
To say you how much I need you.
I wish I gave you everything,
Everything I have.
I wish, I wish, I wish…
I wish you were glad.
