I Wish! A Poem for the Grieving

I wish I kept that last Birthday card

I wish I could undelete that last voicemail

I wish I hadn’t thrown away that last Christmas card

I wish I saved that I hadn’t deleted that final WhatsApp message

I wish I could tell you one more time how much you mean to me

I wish to hear you laugh one last time

I wish I could tell you I love you because I haven’t said that enough

I wish to hear one final insult like only a friend can do

I wish to insult you because you understand that I don’t mean it

I wish you peace

I wish the memories will remain

I wish words could wipe away the pain

I wish, I wish.
