My Wealth

My Wealth

Ola mi, the full expression of all I have
Ola mi, the shores of the riches am blessed with
I know I have everything,because I have you
I know I float in excesses because I have you
I know the minimal of things flee, as here you come
You come to fill my life up
You come to lift my spirit up
You come to become MINE

Ola mi,I yearn all day to have you by me,As life could never be perfect without you;The deepest of desires require you
I wait with all anxiety
Like the months to become but days
So you could be mine in four
Ola mi,my riches,my wealth,my completion,my perfection,
Am blessed to be blessed with your blessing
