I wish I could have told you I was worth it.
I wish I could have told you I would try to change the world.
I wish there was a ‘me’ moment that you would not regret
And knowing I was out there wouldn’t leave you feeling cold.
I wish that I had had a chance to tell you
That life is the most delicious food that I have ever had.
I wish I could have told you that each and every breath I took
Was taken knowing that you could have taken it back.
I wish that you could see the boys you gave to me.
None of us would be here but for you.
I wish that you could see the eyebrows you so clearly gave my son
And the vibrant eyes that stare back so curiously blue.
The speech I practiced for the day I found you
I’ll save until we some how meet again.
We met for just a moment back in ‘72
And without you – we never would have been.
