I Wish

I wish you didn't have to go
so everything would be alright.
I wish I didn't fall asleep
crying alone every night.

I wish I had listened to you
when I inflicted you all this pain.
I wish i paid more attention
Instead of leaving you in the rain.

I wish I still had you to hold
so I could wipe away your tear.
I wish I could still protect you
and chase away you fears.

I wish I still had the time
that you and me would share.
I wish you didn't see me like this
but i'm still glad you care.

I wish I could look into the morror.
Destroy who did this to me.
Now I just wish you would realize
I took you away from me.
