About the Song

Wish you were here, wish you could see this place
Wish you were near, I wish I could touch your face
The weather’s nice, it’s paradise
It’s summertime all year and there’s some folks we know
They say, “Hello, I miss you so, wish you were here”

According to Mark Wills, the song “Wish You Were Here” is not a typical love song that best suits the broken-hearted. Thus, it is a love song that shows a positive insight about life after death.

Every couple’s dream is to travel all around the world. One best moment we can have upon traveling is when we got the chance to see and capture the beauty of the place. Not only that, but we also get to add the best memories we have with our partners.

However, what if he/she died before fulfilling that dream? If that may be the case, then continue to fulfill that dream. Yes, you may be alone fulfilling it, but he/she has not left your side because he/she is right there in your heart.
