I am sorry

with a bruised heart

with a deflated ego

I am sorry

with a sad soul

with a head hung low


My heart is leaking and bleeding,

I overlooked your happiness-

in an attempt to make myself happy

I am sorry for our-

Our smiles, our laughs and memories

those I took for granted,

The regrets, heartbreaks and sadness

those have stolen my life's happiness


The holes in my heart won't heal

plug the holes with your forgiveness

perfect I am not, the same human I still am

change is what is dancing in my mind

remedy is what my heart is seeking


I am sorry for all my White lies

God free my lies, irrespective of their color

they damaged our souls beyond repair

I am sorry for I betrayed your trust-

Your trust a treasure I ill-treated

I am sorry for-

For I selfishly put my needs before yours


Forgive me, forgive this monster

Sorry that I hurt you so deep

Sorry that I acted so cruel

Forgive me;

Let me prove my devotion to you

Take my hand and lets start anew.
