I’M SORRY

It’s so hard to say that I’m sorry
I know it’s too little …. too late
I’ve paid the price …. paid the Piper
I knew you weren’t destined to wait.

I’ve lived with the shame and the sorrow
I’ve regretted it all of my life
I hurt the one person who loved me
I know I was wrong …. you were right. 

I wanted it all …. I  was selfish 
Nothing more than a petulant child
Spinning round in a circle …. going nowhere
Like a dog ….off  a leash ….. running wild.

All I ask is for you to take notice
Know that I take the blame for it all
Not a day passes by without feeling
I should  have humbled myself …. should have crawled.

Should have begged and asked your forgiveness
For the pain that I caused in the end
There’s no excuse  for everything that I did to you 
Wish that I could start over again. 

For now hope that we’ve  calmed the waters
Put to rest all the anger and scorn
No more feelings of rage and resentment 
We’ve dealt with the worst of the storm.

In the end … seems you found what you wanted
Someone stable … someone honest and true
You found love in the midst of the chaos
Please just know ….that I’m happy for you.
