All I Ever Wanted

All I ever wanted was to lead a gorgeous life
To dance in sunbeams by the day and in starlight at night
All I ever wanted was to be the boy who shined
Whose brilliant smile lit the world and eyes reflected sky

All I ever wanted was to be the one they loved
Whose tinkling laugh could reach the clouds like soaring, singing doves
All I wanted was to glint, to sparkle in the air
To win their hearts with nothing but a flicker of my hair

All I wished to do was to illuminate the night
With words that sparked like fireflies and hands that blazed alight
All I dreamt was that one day my heart could warm the earth
To emanate such beauty even I could see my worth

All I ever wanted was all I could never have
I glowed not as a diamond but as onyx, stony black
All I ever wanted was for you to love me, too
But you do not love me, not a single one of you
