What did I do,

To make you feel this way?

Iput you through so much pain.

What mistake did I make to hurt you like this?

Was is something I did?

Or something I said to you?

Or maybe something I didn't say...

I just grew so accustom to keeping things to myself.

Living a life of lies and solitude.

Trying to trust again was harder than I'd thought.

I tried, but I guess I failed.

I was too hesitant

Ifailed to express my feelings.

How in the world will I convince you,

That I never meant to hurt you?

That my words were true and that I need you here.

I wasn't strong enough,

To get over my own fears,

To reach out to help you,

And take your hand to guide you.

Was I not there for you?

Did I cling on too tight?

Why won't you tell me what I did to hurt you?

I've lost my mind,

Trying to find out for myself.

Do you really still care?

Is it possible that you don't hate me,

For leaving you like this?

I never meant to,

And it wasn't my choice.

Were it up to me I would have never left your side.

But sometimes things change,

And misfortune reeks havoc.

What is going on in your mind?

Who else could there be?

You're the only one that's made me feel this way.

How can you think I'm that kind of person?

I'd never do that to anyone--especaily you.

Can you forgive me,

For the pain I've caused you?

I could hear you when you whispered,

Those words to me.

But I'm screaming them out to you,

Butyou can't even hear me.

Don't you see,

That without you I am nothing.

I am numb once again.

I need you by my side.

I need my dear friend back.

Harassed by nightmares every night.

Lying awake staring at the ceiling wonding what I did wrong.

Will you accept my apology?

Can you ever forgive me?

I know I was wrong,

And that my actions were wrong.

I was just lost and confused.

I wasn't myself and hardly in control.

I'm sorry I hurt you.

That is a burden I must now bear.

It haunts me everyday,

And I have to live with it.

I would take it all back,

And take it all away.

If only you would accept me back.

I can't believe I was so blind.

That I couldn't see how much pain you were in.

My goal was to help heal you,

But I only made it worse.

I've never made a mistake as horrible as this.

What have I done?
