I Wish I Could Have Told You

I wish I could have been there to tell you that it wasn’t your fault.

I wish I could have told you that you didn’t ask for any of this. 

I wish I could have been there to offer comfort when you were binge eating alone in your apartment at 3 AM.

I wish I could have been there when you had to leave your job, because leaving your bed just didn’t feel possible anymore.

I wish in all those moments that you felt so alone, I could have told you how loved you were. 

In those moments where leaving seemed like the only option, I wish I could have told you what your future looked like.

I wish I could have told you about your mom, and how much she’s going to help you.

I wish I could have told you how loved she’ll make you feel.

I wish I could have told you that in just a few months you’ll meet a man who makes you believe that good ones really do exist. 

I wish I could have told you about your wedding day.

I wish I could have told you how loved your friends and family will make you feel every day.

I wish I could have shown you that there is so much more than him and what he did.

There is so much more than that lonely apartment.

There is so much more than what you’re feeling right now.

I wasn’t able to tell you then, but you’re here now.

He will never hurt you again.

Look at all you’ve accomplished.

Look how much you’ve grown.

Look at this beautiful life you’ve made for yourself. 

I wasn’t able to tell you then, but I’m telling you now,

I am so proud of you.
