I wish I could make the rain stop
make the sun pierce the black clouds
warm your gentle heart
to make the birds come out
a robin to sing a little ditty
and swallows to dance in the now blue sky
I wish I could see you smile
a deep smile that lights the room
to see the mirth bubble over
And hear the rumble of your laughter.
I wish I could do all these things and more
but most of all
I wish I could make it all better.
