If I could have a wish come true,
a dream that'd come to pass,
I'd ask to spend the day with you,
and pray that it would last.
I'd run to you and hold you close,
We'd laugh and smile again.
I'd listen so intensely,
As you tell me how you've been.
When time was up I'd hold you close,
Not wanting to let go,
You'd smile and tell me, 'see you soon'
And somehow I would know
That while it's very hard to wait,
One day that time will come,
I'll join you there forevermore,
When I too am called home
My wish may go ungranted,
But it always will be true...
I'd trade many of my tomorrows,
For one yesterday with you.
