My Sincere Apologies

Life is too short for bitter regrets,

Untied ends and people never met.

Coming closer to the bitter end,

I've decided to make my amends.

---

Righting all that I've done wrong,

Just a mockingbird singing a sad song.

I'm sorry for all the sins I've committed,

And I'm sorry for all the others I've omitted.

---

This is for all the things that I have done,

For all the times I just turned to run.

Now I see the error of my ways,

So please listen to what I have to say.

---

I'm sorry for all the laws that I broke,

I'm sorry for all the ill omens I spoke.

Sorry for all the hearts that I've broken,

Sorry for all that remained unspoken.

---

I cannot sleep with all these things in mind,

But I wish that an answer is what I will find.

I hope that you have the strength to forgive me,

Because this is my sincere apology.

---

I apologize for when I wasn't there,

For the times it seemed like I didn't care.

Where was I when you needed me most?

I was lost, just a wandering ghost.

---

Sorry for when you asked why I wasn't here,

Sorry for the times you wished I was near,

Sorry for when your heart was filled with fear,

Sorry dear, please don't shed your tears.

---

I'm sorry for all the laws that I broke,

I'm sorry for all the ill omens I spoke.

Sorry for all the hearts that I've broken,

Sorry for all that remained unspoken.

---

I cannot sleep with all these things in mind,

But I wish that an answer is what I will find.

I hope that you have the strength to forgive me,

Because this is my sincere apology.

---

Come on now please don't cry,

Watching your sorrow makes me want to die.

And now I'm on the ground kneeling down,

Doing all I can to heal that frown.

---

Please understand, I'm offering my hand,

Head bowed down awaiting your command.

Anything to do to right my wrongs,

I promise you I'll do it no matter how long.
