I wish I could see their faces or hear their voices.
I wish I could talk their hands and guide their choices.
I wish I could comfort them when they are sad.
I wish I could talk to them and point out things that are bad.
I wish I could sit back and watch them grow. I wish I could point out life is fast so take it slow.
I wish I could hear the word Daddy and give them a kiss.
I wish I could get back time and everything that I miss.
I wish this world was easy and this system wasn’t broke.
I wish I had other choices and would not have had to spoke.
I wish I could fix this problem for you and for me.
I hope it will be fixed one day so this nightmare my children one day will not have to see.
I wish above anything that I’ve endured. That this money for justice and kids for sale is cured.
Will and Addie, as yet another year has past. I just want you to know I love you and hope it is one year closer to the last.
