Listen to The Wish by Richard Charles Stevens

Listen to Awakening by Magic Sword

i wish
i wish
that you could see
what i see
would give my all
to see you standing tall
with faith abiding
doing that precisely which comes naturally to you
moving every mountain to make rapturous the view
proving there exists a light
in every darkened corner kissed
i wish
i wish
that you could see
what i see

stand up every blessing and be counted in thy name
for thine is gift most bountiful
can soundly change the game
not a word of praise unfounded
this or any other day
has to be another way to make you see
what i see most decisively

try to be in my shoes
i do cordially invite thee
to walk without a fraught thought for the course and where it might lead
make the cut and justify it
trust your gut and bust it trying
just enough to testify the ancient rite of flying
soaring
scoring skies with eyes adoring
braiding dead of night to morning
second sight imploring the like-minded to confide their stories

night need not affright when there is daylight to be spun
glory knows no measure of the fame accrued by one
come together
weather storms
find the tethers
kind in form
go one better
try them all
teach them how to rise from fall
use that shout
put out the call
show devout
to timeless cause
do not seek the eyes of fools
or fools are all you’ll see
take the fall and make it steep
for blindest faith endorses greatest leaps
play the game for e’er prevailing keeps

i wish
i wish
that you could see
what i see
the kind of fight that need not waste time choosing battles wisely
the kind of brave that sides with resolution
not affray
the kind obliged to fall in
calling truce of night and day
reuniting light and shade
underwriting blindest faith
guiding lost souls
finding ways to aid their plight
plain defy reprisal raids
escape the blight and ride out pouting tidal waves

i wish
i wish
that one fine day
you could see what i see
would give my all
to see you standing tall
with testifying grace
withstanding all identifying traits
doing that precisely which comes naturally to you
soothing eyes confiding timeless truths

i wish
i wish
that you could see
what i see
i hope and pray
that you already do
just one reminder timely
all it takes to reacquire the hops
from crops anew
concoct a heady brew
i believe in you
will always do
subject not to winds of change
underpinned unstinting faith
dignified a single wish
to see what i see
time and time again
a mighty brave with flame so bright
both sun and moon ablaze in twine
the kind of wings that sing a song of everlong when they take flight
night need not affright when there is daylight to be spun
glory knows no measure of the fame accrued by one
come together
weather storms
find the tethers
kind in form
go one better
try them all
teach them how to rise from fall
use that shout
put out the call
show devout
to righteous cause
divine delight projected
through foresight in kind directed
to the redefined light vested
from a redirected source
with this one kiss
i reminisce an idealistic dream
i wish
i wish
that you could see
what i see

make the cut and justify it
trust your gut and bust it trying
just enough to testify the ancient rite of flying
soaring
scoring skies with eyes adoring
braiding dead of night to morning
second sight imploring the like-minded to confide their stories
doing that precisely which comes naturally to you
moving every mountain to make rapturous the view
stand up every blessing and be counted in thy name
for thine is gift most bountiful
can soundly change the game
