I Apologize

{A Letter To My Soul}

Where do I start and where do I begin

Without you I know now I am nothing

After saying it to all the people I know

I never once took the time to say to you I love you so

To you I sincerely apologize

What was I thinking why did I criticize

Certainly I was being obtuse and unwise

I never looked close enough the see me in your eyes

To you I am really sorry

I was so foolish and angry

I took you for granted

But you was all that I ever needed

Now after all the things I’ve said and done

You never saw me as the villain

I swear that I am so sorry

Mine eyes were truly blurry

I cannot find the right words to let you know how I feel

For desires kept deep inside never to reveal

Please find it in your heart to forgive

I kept you like a bird in a cage captive

I was so utterly fatuous and stupid

I see you now crystal and limpid

Clearly I see that you were always there

You laughed and listen always showing you care

I was an oafish tiny man learning how to crawl

It was you that made me stand tall

You were there to catch me when I fall

I should have given you more than my all

You taught me how to live again then

You never asked me how, where, or when

You were truly my only best friend

It was you my broken heart you mend

Downward spiraling counterclockwise

I wore pants too big for my size

You made me open up my eyes

You taught me not to ever compromise

Filled with tears my spirit cries

Glistening in the skies like fireflies

Never faltered given exercise

My soul, I to you, I apologize

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
