At This Moment…

If I had known that you would be gone so soon, I would have done better by you…

If I had known that you wouldn’t be around to dance at my wedding…

I wouldn’t have acted silly and embarrassed when you asked me to dance…I would have stepped up onto your feet, placed my little hand in yours and would have danced like Cinderella at that ball.

If I would have known that I would long just to hear the sound of your voice calling me, “Lady.”

I would have used a tape recorder to record it.

If I wasn’t so stubborn, just like you…I would have known how sick you were and I wouldn’t have let the last three months of your life slip by.

If I wasn’t such a coward and came into your room that last day…had I been less selfish and let a little thing like sleep overwhelm me maybe I could have been there and you wouldn’t have had to die alone…

At this moment…I miss you

At this moment…I wish I had been a better daughter…

At this moment…I wish that I had been there for you…

At this moment…it all seems irrelevant right now…
