    Some time in the past, you lost your keys.
    Now you wish it hadn't happened.

    Yesterday I lost my temper with my friend. Now I am sorry. I wish I hadn't lost my temper.

    Right now I have a headache. I don't have any aspirin. I wish I had some aspirin.

    Tomorrow I have a softball game. I would be nice to win. I hope my team wins.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
