I wish I could have been there,
When it finally dawned on you-
This time I really meant it,
When I said that we were through.

The last time was the last time-
You’d ever see me cry-
I wish I could have been there-
When you read the line, “Goodbye”!

I wish I could have been there-
When you came through the front door,
To see the scattered pictures-
Lying there upon the floor.

I wish I could have seen your face-
When you walked into the den-
And found my rigging missing
From the nail where it had been.

The same expression on your face-
I saw there long ago-
The day you made me take my pick-
‘Twixt you, or rodeo.

I wish I could have been there-
I think? but then again-
At least against a two ton bull-
I have a chance to WIN!

Woo-Hoo! Pull it a little tighter this ride, the odds are in your favor!

Let my words fall first upon deaf ears before a closed mind...
