I Wish

I wish I could have been there

When you took your first step

I wish I could have heard you

Speak your first word

I wish I could have held your hand

On your first day of school

I wish I could have helped you

Learn to ride your bike

I wish I could have met

Your first boyfriend when he came to pick you up

I wish I could have held your arm

As you walked down the aisle to meet your groom

But most of all, I wish I hadn't left your mom

When she was pregnant at 16
