I Wish I Had Some Sorcery


I wish I had some sorcery
That would en-lighten you and me
I wish I had a special spell
That would make us smile and make us tell
Stories that would make us smile
Not fine and fancy just one’s that I’ll
Revisit when I think of you
Not much to ask but hard to do
But life’s not like that so it seems
We live our lives inventing dreams
We talk within ourselves too much
And lose the thrill of closeness’ touch
We weave a wall out of our thoughts
Without the doors that open or
We gain distraction from our past
And fear to let the present last.
