Baby Blue (November 25,1988 / Pensacola)
Forgiveness and Relief
i disappointed you
and hurt myself in the process.
i just need you to know that i am sorry
that i have torn my heart apart-fretting about
what you will say, how you will react, how i will feel
you were calm......and gentle.
forgiving and loving......and concerned.
thank you-you saved me from multiple days
of heartache, from self rebuke, and shame. thank you
for caring, and not being too firm; for being little and meek;
for seeing my overwhelming, self-inflicted pain;
for seeing me as the adult that you taught me to be.
im sorry....i love you.
