How I Wish

Oh! How I wish this time was ours
For you and I to share,
Through every waking minute, Love;
Sweet moments without care.

To hold your hand and feel your kiss,
And passion-filled caress,
To deeply gaze into your eyes:
How shall I fare with less?

And yet, with patience, bide my time,
I must until that day
When finally and evermore
In my embrace you'll stay.
