was is worth it?

Of all the things you missed out on what will you regret the most? Will it be the birthdays, or the holidays, or the first days' of school? Will it be the leg-shaving lessons, or the birds and the bees, or the boys aren't as great as you think talks? Will you cry about the nights you couldn't tuck us into bed, or the times you knew we needed you but you weren't there? Will you cry for the times we didn't get to say I love you, or had you comb our hair? Will you even realized that the three little girls you left behind are now grown women? I just wonder... was it worth it?
