As I Wander About...

As I wander about this world,
You know,
I keep looking all manner of around, about;
And I keep looking, desperately, searching...

And as I wander about this world,
You know,
I always keep hoping, nay praying -
That my life may someday be blessed
By such a delightful presence
As is the most blessed presence of you...

Oh dear please hear me!
As I keep wandering this world...
I've watched a thousand suns set,
I've embraced a thousand more sunrises,
Yet I've never even once embraced you.

Yet if I could, if you would just allow me to,
Surely, I would, God knows that I would...
For you've touched me, you've moved me,
Like too few, like oh so very too few!

Oh dear please I pray, hear me!
As I keep wandering about this world...
I keep imagining you...
I keep seeing you...
I keep oh so missing you!
