I Wish I Were There

I Wish I Were There short poem

Photo by rkramer62

I wish I were there
To watch you grow,
And help you back up
When you’ve taken a blow.

I wish I were there
To watch you play,
Or teach you how to catch
A ball without delay.

I wish I were there
To help you study,
Or walk you to school
As if I was your only buddy.

I wish I were there
To clean up your mess,
Even though in the end
I know you’ll be a great success.

I wish I were there,
Though all we’ve been through,
Just to look you in the eyes
And say that I love you.
