I wish I had more time, more hours in every day
Making the most of those moments to sit with my girls and play.
I wish I had more time to catch up on some sleep
I’m sure it would make my temper much easier to keep!
I wish I had more time just to watch my babies grow
Time rushes by so quickly, I wish it would go slow!
I wish I had more time to get all those boring jobs done
And then perhaps I’d concentrate on making time for fun
I wish I had more time, to visit family and friends
It’s just that there is so much else to do at the weekends!
I wish I had more time, just to sit and have some cuddles
Time for singing lullabies, for fairy tales and snuggles
I wish I had more time for focusing on fun
Instead of focusing on getting all that pile of laundry done
I wish I’d had more time, or the clock I could rewind
Just so I could see my father’s face just one more time
I wish I had more time… but wishing won’t change it anyhow
So I’ll stop and enjoy each precious moment in the here and now.
