EXPLANATION :  As you see, we use the Simple Past Tense after the verb wish to express a present situation we want to be different or events. We can use If only instead of I wish to state our wish emphatically.
We use the past perfect after the verb wish to express regret about unreal past situations or events , that is , something happened or didn’t happen in the past .
