I wish it was me, lying beneath you, feeling your breath whisper across my skin.
I wish it was me, making your heart thunder in your chest as my lips explore hidden places
I wish it was me, sitting in your lap, with my head on your shoulder
I wish it was me, that got to see your ordinary socks each day
I wish I was the one who could come up behind you and place a kiss on your neck as I wrap my arms around your shoulders and ask you what you wanted for dinner.
I wish it was me who could help you clean up the magazine clippings left behind by the tiny souls that you love so much.
I wish it was me who could make you smile each day when you finish work.
I wish It had been me who could have sat with you while you waited for your sister.
I wish it was us holding hands in the sunset
I wish it was us planning for the a new arrival
I wish it was us, laughing until we cry
I wish it was you, that held me when the world tries to crush me.
I wish it was you, that pushed me to go where you know I can.
I wish it was you that stroked my hair while I recover from a nightmare
I wish it was your voice that I heard falling asleep each night
I wish I wasn’t so jealous of the other women.
I wish my chest didn’t hurt so much when you speak of them
I wish I could let you go
I wish this didn’t hurt so much
