I Wish I Wrote

A promise written in between the pages
A message hidden in the lyric
The wonders of the world are in the melody
The song I never wrote
First heard it had to catch my breath
First flung into my destiny
The beauty of the song I wish I wrote
The beginning of the song I will make
Mystery behind the voice which it sings
Mystery behind its creator
Love and forgiveness is what it says
Love and time I put into my own lyric
Was lightning that overtook it all
Was nothing more in the song
I wish I wrote

Gianni Morsell
