The Wish


I wished tonight
that it hadn’t rained that night
that you hadn’t had that drink
that you hadn’t ridden that bike

I wished tonight
that I hear your voice when you’d call
I wished not to miss you
or to have never met you at all

I wished tonight
that I could rearrange the past, to rewind
I wish you hadn’t shown me you
No other as genuine, as kind.

I wished tonight
upon everything I could see or know
for different last words said so offhandedly
for a chance for our story to unfold and grow

I wished tonight
with regret, desperation and fear
I wished a simple, impossible wish tonight
I wished you were here
