A poem of forgiveness


sorry if i keep on hurting you
sorry if you don't like the things i say or do
sorry if with you i always put up a fight
sorry i just can't do anything right

sorry if i'm way far from being an angel
except compared to an angel from hell
sorry if you think my excuses are lies
sorry if it's so difficult quiting my vice

sorry if i'm not too understanding
sorry for all the headaches and pain i bring
sorry if often it's hard for me to swallow my
pride
sorry if often i'm too blinded by anger to see
your side

sorry if i'm so complicated
sorry i keep making you feel frustrated
sorry i can't fight back the tears
sorry if i keep you away from your peers

sorry if i always complain about you not meeting
my expectations
sorry if sometimes i can't fight all these
temptations
sorry if i seem like a joke to you
sorry if i don't appreciate all those sweet
things you do

sorry if i keep on repeating the same mistakes
sorry i say stupid things and i can't find the
breaks
sorry i keep on hitting you when i'm mad
or ruin your day when mine's bad

sorry if i screw up being perfect for you
sorry i can never be the girl who's right for you
sorry if i'm such an awful girlfriend
sorry if...i can't even be your best friend.

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;

Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
