I wish

IMG_0810

I wish I hadn’t cried so much

I wish I hadn’t seen a diagnosis

I wish I’d seen how beautiful you were

I wish I hadn’t thought you were broken

I wish I’d realised I was broken

I wish I hadn’t judged you by the shape of your eyes

I wish I had known they were your greatest feature

I wish the Dr who made your diagnosis hadn’t been so callous

I wish I had poked him in the eyes repeatedly

I wish he had seen your perfection

I wish I had seen your perfection

I wish I hadn’t focused on the one extra chromosome

I wish I had seen your ability

I wish I had understood the gift that you are

I wish I got my fight on sooner

I wish I loved you sooner

I wish I held you longer

I wish, I wish, I wish

But most of all I wish you the world, as that’s what you’ve brought to us.
