i wish you were here

when i wake up at dawn
feeling the cool breeze
and the orange sky
i close my eyes

and wish you were here

i go out for a walk
engrossed in your thoughts
chirping of birds on a tree
frees me of the knot

and i wish
you were here

when it rains
and the rainbow appears
i feel the colors
and feel you near
the raindrops wash the clot

and i wish
you were here

sometimes i wander alone in afternoon
the bright sun shines
as i am standing in dunes
the hot winds washes the sand
your face in my chest and you hold my hand

these moments are like mirage
always far but always near

i wish i wish i wish
you were here

the dusk falls
night embraces the day
even the sun can't fight
the coming dismay

i walk towards the darkning fear
realizing to fight it alone
and i wish you were here

the moonlit sky
and the milky way
they dont enrich anymore
the memories foray

in the sky i imagine your face somewhere
tears roll down my face

and i wish you were here
i wish you were here
i wish you were here

this is very cool...
hey just related ...reminds me of pink floyd's of my fav..
here are the lyrics..

So, so you think you can tell
Heaven from Hell,
Blue skys from pain.
Can you tell a green field
From a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?

And did they get you to trade
Your heros for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
And did you exchange
A walk on part in the war
For a lead role in a cage?

How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We're just two lost souls
Swimming in a fish bowl,
Year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have we found?
The same old fears.
Wish you were here.
