I Wish


Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006 with permission of the Author.

I wish you were here with me
I wish you were here every day,
To hug me, to ask me if I'm doing okay.
I wish you were here when I got my first doll
So you could join us at the Town Square Ball.
I wish you were here when I played dress up
So I could get into tons of trouble with your make up.
I wish you were here to see me through high school.
Then maybe you would know that I am not a fool.
I know it's okay that you are not here with me,
Because everywhere I go, there God will be.
It's okay not to have a mother.
Every day I still go a little further.
One day I will have my own little girl.
We will laugh, dance, run, and twirl.
Into the evening we will drink lemonade on the porch swing.
I will teach her how to be a mother
Because one day she will have her own daughter.
I wish you were here with me
Watching, so you could see what a good mother I will be.
