My Wishes

I wish that I could see myself
The way you'd always seen.
The pain and lies and heartache
That to me seemed too obscene.

I wish that I could turn back time
To the very first hello.
But with the knowledge I have now
Of why you let me go.

I wish the torture you endured
Had never come to pass.
I wish that I had had the strength
To save us from this path.

I wish that every kiss and hug
Had held its first impress.
I wish my demons hadn't won
I wish I'd loved them less.

I wish the outcome wasn't this.
I wish that I had seen.
I wish that I'd been half the man
You needed me to be.
