"I'm sorry" doesn't do it justice

It doesn't explain how much it hurts

The knowledge that I burdened you

With my pathetic problems

"I'm sorry" just doesn't quite explain

The fierce need I feel, to take them back

To erase those words that slipped out

Those problems that I gave to you

"I'm sorry" never works

Because it's more than regret

More than the pain, which doubled

When I realized what I had done to you

But "I'm sorry" is all that I can think of

To make you understand

So I will say it again, one last time

I'm so very sorry
