I wish my tears had washed away what caused them.

I wish I could know what I want to know.

I wish I had been who I am now … and who I will be.

I wish I had been less certain of what I knew and more certain of what I did not know.

I wish I were better to myself so I could have been better to others.

I wish I had loved more cautiously … less deeply.

I wish I had understood humans better and sooner.

I wish my children knew how much … how deep and how wide.

I wish my secrets realized that I have changed.

I wish my mistakes showed more compassion to me… and to others.

I wish time had favored me more than it has.

I wish time were in less of a hurry when it raced and sprinted when it crawled.

I wish… but then I keep on living.
