I Wish I Could

Ehsan Sehgal

I wish I could be your love
I wish I could devote
My life for your life
My joy for your joy
My smile for your smile
My dream for your dream
I wish I could twist
My fingers in your hairs
I wish I could kiss
Your sweet lips
Your lovely eyes
Your shining forehead
I wish I could take you
In my arms
To give you
The pleasure of entire universe
I wish I could do all that
I love you till my death
My heart, my mind
And my soul is only for you
