NoraI 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.
