I'm Sorry

I’m Sorry

I’m sorry if I couldn’t see

The things you wanted me to be.

For all the times I’ve let you down

For all the times I’ve made you frown.

I’m sorry for you, sorry for us

Our love to me was no big fuss.

The love that you had shared with me

I locked it up, never set it free.

I kept it from myself and you,

Leaving it for god-knows-what to do.

Sorry for keeping you abandoned until late at night,

For coming home drunk and ready to fight,

I made you cry, I made you pout

It seemed all I ever did was shout.

I took your love for granted my dear.

And if only you still were here…

I’d tell you I am sorry.
