“I Want It All”

I want it all
            smiles that light up your face
            embraces when we part
            caresses that sooth a troubled soul
            words that comfort when all is lost
            love that lasts forever more

I want it all
            attention to the little details of my life
            devotion that sings in harmony with me
            consideration when I hit defeat
            celebration when I succeed
            affection wrapped in tenderness

I want it all
            hours of your life each day
            days where I’m the only one
            weeks when our universe consists of just us
            months of serenity and hope
            years of splendor

I want it all
            your life entwined with mine
            your breath synchronized to me
            your thoughts revealed and cherished
            your essence captured in my hands
            your love that never ends

I want it all
