I wish you knew, how many days I cry, because all I want to do is stay home and be with you.
I wish you knew, how much I don’t want to say “I can’t right now” when you ask me to play, and I am getting ready for work in the morning.
I wish you knew that when I look into your eyes, I see innocence, but sometimes lose my temper if I am in a rush or a bind. I hope you know I don’t mean it.
I wish you knew, how much it breaks my heart when you cry and call for me when I have to leave you at daycare, and how much I just want to be the one to take care of you all day long.
I wish you knew, that I am crying as I write this, because I love you more than anything in this world, and when you cry, I cry.
I wish you knew, the reason why I can’t always play with you when you ask.
I wish I could play with you all day. I wish you knew, how much I want to walk back in that door and hug you, when you are crying and calling my name, when I have to leave.
I wish you knew, that the reason I leave each day, is to provide you with everything you could need and want, and more.
I wish you knew, that one day, you will understand…
