Marc Broussard – Gavin's Song lyrics

I wish you freedom
I wish you peace
I wish you nights of stars
That beckon you to sleep
I wish you heartache
That leaves you more of a man?
I wish I could be there
But I can't

I wish you places
That sit so still
Where people never ever change
And Never ever will
I wish I could hold you
And make you understand
I wish I could be there
But I can't

Be good for your mama
Cause she'll need a hand to hold
Boy, she loves you
More than you'll ever know
There are rhymes and there are reasons
And times when nothing stayed the same
But you know my love still remains

I wish you wisdom
I wish you years
I wish you armies
To conquer all your fears
I wish you courage for all that life demands
I wish I could be there
But I can't

Be good for your mama
Cause she'll need a hand to hold
Boy, she loves you
More than you'll ever know
There are rhymes and there are reasons
And times when nothing stayed the same
But you know my love still remains

I wish we were together
I wish I was home
I wish there were nights
Where I was never alone
I know I've said it
But I'll say it once again
I wish I could be there
But I can't

    Well' where do I start. Ok, I am currently serving our country in Iraq for a 3rd time and my son Gavin, really, who is almost 7 years old is experiencing his 3rd year away from Daddy. Recently he has had some issue with emotions in which my wife has brought to my attention. So one of my Soldiers tell me of this song a few weeks ago and I just listen to it today. I am a combat hardened sob but this song brought tears to my eyes. It fit my current family situation perfect. The name of the song, the lyrics, and the current situation. I immediately sent the lyrics and the song to my wife while chatting to her. Her and Gavin listened to it and Gavin wrote to me "thank you Daddy". Thank you Marc for being such an artist to touch peoples lives in ways you can't imagine. I love you Suzanne, Gavin, and Piper. Daddy will be home soon!
