"I Want to Give You the World"

I want to give you the world  
with its promise    
with its pleasure     
with its plenitude   
I want to give you the world      
without the doubts    
without the debt   
without the desperation     
I want to give you the world   
with its splendor   
with its sunrises  
with its surprises    
I want to give you the world     
without the worry      
without the weaknesses     
without the wantonness   
I want to give you the world    
with its hope     
with its humor     
with its happiness
