I wish I knew then what I know now! ‘Dad’ by Sue Wickstead
I wish I knew then, that you would die so young dad.
I never thought that you would be gone so early in our lives.
I thought you would be there to meet your grandchildren.
I thought you would play and laugh and enjoy their lives.
I thought you would have enjoyed holidays and playtime in their company and they in yours.
But you didn’t live and you didn’t see them.
