' I'm Sorry '


Oh, dear daughter,
I'm sorry that I hurt you,
I'm sorry that I was not there,
I'm sorry for the way things are,
I'm sorry that you didn't think I cared.
Maybe one day the pain will ease and
being unforgiving will cease, until then
my dear daughter
I'm sorry.

    This is the very first time in my entire life I have ever felt exactly the way this poem reads. It is very humbling. I never would wish that feeling of dispair on any mother as I caused a mess and for that I AM Sorry. I Love You Mariah With my Heart And full being. Please Forgive Mommy.Please (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
