I wish I had known you when you were a little kid, maybe you were more playful. I wish I had known you when you knew and felt what happy was like, maybe you would have been more of an enjoyment. I wish I had known you when you adored the company of family and friends, when you didn’t care about what anyone thought, when you lived life to the fullest, loved everyone you know and cared for. I wish I had known you before it happened, before you left to go to the war.
This story was based on a kid who’s father left for war when he was born. When he came back, he was a different man.
