I regret that I never had been the one that courted you in high school, who broke down your insecurities and made you feel you that you were the most beautiful woman on earth.
I regret that I never had taken you to our prom, to have picked you up at your parents doorstep, to have kissed you while we slow danced, to have walked with you on the beach after it was all over, to have taken you home after a wonderful experience.
I regret that I never had taken the time to explore the world with you, to have shared in new experiences with you, to overcome our fears together, to meet new people and make new friends together as we travelled the world.
I regret that I never had had a special day, where everything was planned perfectly, for you to have not a clue, until I went down on one knee and asked if you would marry me.
I regret that I never had watch you walk down the aisle, to have said the vows, to put a ring on your finger as you said “I do” with both our families and friends watching and celebrating our union together.
I regret that I never had woken up with you every morning, made love with you, spent days just doing nothing but being together, just the two of us but being completely happy just being in each other’s presence.
I regret that I never had been there to support your career, to be share in what you’d accomplished, to comfort you when you had a hard day, to take pride in you reaching your goals.
I regret that I never had been there when you told me that you were pregnant, to tell you how happy you made me, to see your belly grow, to hold your hand while you bore down, to hear its first cry, to share tears of joy with you for our child was born.
I regret that I never had been there to get up at all hours to feed and change the baby while you got some sleep, to watch it grow, to take its first steps, to plan the birthdays, all celebrated with you.
I regret that I never had been there when your grandmother was ill, to have supported you through your pain, to have allowed you to spend time with her until her last day.
I regret that I never had made a home with you, a place where we would raise our family, have our friends and relatives over to share in great food and company.
I regret that I never had grown old with you, to see our grandchildren born, to fuss over them and spoil them, to pass our wisdom to them, to tell them of how you and I met so long ago.
