I'm Truly Sorry


My selfish, blind ignorance, may cost me the best,
Such a long journey, such a strenuous quest,

All of my life I'd been searching for love,
And you seemed like a blessing, a gift from above,

But in my anger I hurt you, and I must pay the cost,
I pray you'll forgive me, if not all is lost,

Will it all end in ruins? Will it be all for not? ,
Forsaken by my foolishness, I must have forgot,

She's the one thing I wanted, the one thing I need,
And I've pushed her away, with my ignorant greed,

If she knew just how much that I want her to stay,
How I wish that this feeling would just go away,

This unbearable guilt that I've caused on my own,
I feel as if I've cut her deep, straight to the bone,

She must know that I need her love to survive,
And without her I'd be more dead than alive,

She must know that I adore her, after all that we've been through,
And it pains me so much, to know that I've hurt you,

Baby I'm so sorry, I know I did wrong,
But right by your side is where I belong,

So please take a second and think,
Without you, I've seemed to lost a link,

Cara it is our friendship that is everything,
Without it feels like we've got nothing,

With all the things in the world that harms,
Only holding you tight to protect you in my arms,

I know no other way to show you how I feel,
But to tell you with a kiss to seal the deal,

Knowing you have a broken heart,
Is what stops me from finding where to start,

So just know I will always care for you,
No matter whatever it is you have to go through,

Our friendship is a bond never to be broken,
And my affection for you will always be spoken,

One day things may be somewhat better,
And we can finally be together,

For now I will always miss you,
And wish nothing more then to kiss you!
