If I Had a Wish

June 25, 2011




It was hard to fix my life.
No use wishing away truths
That burn into you like tatoos
And... always leave a trace.

I dealt with mean realities.
No use wishing away those ghosts
Who chase you into the night
And... always leave a trace.

I swore I'd never cry again...
No use wishing tears away
When the pain is there
And... always leaves a trace.

But... as I look back on all your days...
If I'd had a wish... it would have been...
Only for you...
No matter what that meant to me...
Only for you...
It would hurt less... now.
