An older video from my youtube. Thought I'd share it.

 

I can't play this song without crying, but I managed to hold off until the end. I'm very sorry for that, (more)

I can't play this song without crying, but I managed to hold off until the end. I'm very sorry for that, but this song comes so much from my heart that it gets to me every time I play it. The lyrics are older, the melody I wrote a year later. I'd love to know what you think.

"My Only Wish"
by Kari Fleskes
November 18, 2006

I guess I tried too hard, one too many times
to open up his eyes.
Seems I pushed a little too much
toward what I thought was right.

It hurt so bad to watch him fall;
It always brought me to my knees.
But he'll be all right, he's said it many times.
We both know he doesn't need me.

(Chorus:)
But I'm asking for an angel to follow him home;
A little bit of happiness wherever he goes.
And if he looks back on what he used to know,
I hope he thinks of me from time to time;
And my only wish is that he smiles.

There are days every now and then
when I bend long after I break.
What hurt the most was him letting go,
and watching him walk away.

(Repeat Chorus)

(Bridge:)
I hope life stays good to him
and he takes it one day at a time.
I pray he finds a hand to hold
in the middle of the night;
And that every heart he reaches for
becomes all he wants it to.
Loving him was all I tried to do--
No one can love him like I do.

(Chorus 2:)
But I'm praying for an angel to follow him home;
A hundred little miracles everywhere he goes.
And when he looks back on what he used to know,
I hope he thinks about me for a little while;
And my only wish is that he smiles.
