I wish you knew how much I love you all.
I wish you knew I want to be a family. Even if it’s changing and growing.
I wish you knew that I need you.
I wish I could be less afraid.
I wish we could all find clarity.
I wish I could watch you grow old and grey.
I wish I could write books and make us all rich.
I wish I could be at your side as you realize your dreams.
I wish I could be all things to everyone. I can’t.
I wish I could hike through a rainy park with Arthur, feeling my cheeks get rosy and my heart fill with hope.
I wish we could each have something wonderful right now. I still think we do.
I wish you weren’t feeling so much pressure from every side and every angle.
I wish for understanding.
I wish for faith.
I wish for patience.
I wish for unconditional love and support from my parents.
I wish for more communication with my father.
I wish for strength.
I wish for a stack of books and a cup of tea.
