Please Forgive Me

Please, 'Forgive Me',
While I'm fighting in Iraq,
Please, 'Forgive Me',
I pray that I make it back.

Please, 'Forgive Me',
For not being home with you.
Please, 'Forgive Me',
I'm so in 'Love with you',

Please, 'Forgive Me',
For leaving you alone,
Please, 'Forgive Me',
For the tantrums I have thrown.

Please, 'Forgive Me',
My world's turned upside down,
Please 'Forgive Me',
Even though I'm not around.

Please, 'Forgive Me',
I have terror here to bear,
Please, 'Forgive Me',
Tell me that you still care.

Please, 'Forgive Me',
Till I'm in your arms again,
Please, 'Forgive Me',
In the letters that you send.

Please, 'Forgive Me',
So I can smile today,
Please, 'Forgive Me',
When I come back home to stay.

Please, 'Forgive Me',
I'm so angry from this fight,
Please, 'Forgive Me',
As I write this in the night.

Please, 'Forgive Me',
I killed a man today,
Please, 'Forgive Me',
It will take my sorrow away.

Please, 'Forgive Me',
I feel so all alone,
Please, 'Forgive Me',
I'll be coming home.

Poem of the Day

"Heaven"—is what I cannot reach!
The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
