I Wish
©2010 Doug Spears

Oh I wish I could remember all the faces that I've seen,
All the creases, lines and wrinkles full of life lived in between,
But you know I do remember every shape of your smile,
The smile that hid such sadness so hard to reconcile.

Oh I wish, Oh I wish,
Oh I wish I could remember you right back into my life.

And I wish I could remember all the voices that I've heard,
Voices singing from the heart in strong and simple words,
But you know I do remember the very texture of your laugh,
A laugh that echoes from your eyes in treasured photographs.

Oh I wish, Oh I wish,
Oh I wish I could remember you right back into my life.
                        
    And I'm living with the memory of all the times I
      thought we'd share,
    And how I might have kept you here if only I had
      dared.

And I wish I could remember all the tears that I've cried,
Tears of joy and sorrow, tears that had no reason why,
But you know I do remember the tears of your goodbye,
Tears that stain my broken heart and never seem to dry.

Oh I wish, Oh I wish,
Oh I wish I could remember you right back into my life.

Oh I wish, Oh I wish,
I wish I could remember you back into my life.
