Time passes us by and the days grow dim,
I find myself getting caught up in the world's activities
but don't know how to balance them.
Gradually my mind gives way to other chores…
next thing you know the seasons have changed
The months race by and hours do not cease,
my emotions for you suddenly decrease.
My feelings become hardened and my eyes are blocked,
regrettably I cannot see your broken heart.
The worldly duties have torn us apart, nowadays
I have become a slave to my selfish ways.
Due to my actions,
I denied you love and satisfaction.
Problems have arise and our affections have died,
I was blind to the hurt and tears you hide.
You waited patiently for me to pull you near
so you could hear those special three words that are so dear.
I must take heed; acknowledge your needs
and say…I am sorry for my foolish deeds.
Here I stand with these gesture and expression to say,
I will love you always.
