How I wish I could make the world
A happy place for you.
So no matter what you wished for
Your dreams would all come true.
And I wish I could make the world
A safe one for you too.
So that no matter where you went
No harm could come to you.
And I would like to make the world
A loving one for you.
So you were loved by those you love
And they were ever true.
And if only I could mend each hurt
With just a word or two,
I’d mend them all so readily
To make you good as new.
But my wishes and wants and ifs
Are things I can not guarantee.
There’s just one thing I’m certain of-
You have my love eternally.
