I Am Only Yours

by Ehsan Sehgal

I wish I could your feet
I wish I could your eyes
I wish I could your hands
I wish I could your dream
I wish I could your prayer
I wish I could your love
I wish I were in your thoughts
I am pure love
Without ugly conditions
My soul is Divine gift
At any time, you need me
I will be there
To hold you in my arms
Lighten your grief
Cure your wounds
Smile on your face
To see, feel, taste
The purity and reality
Of love
You ever dreamed
No matter
You live far away
From me
But I am only yours.
