I'M Sorry I Hurt You... - Poem by Derrick Andrews

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 love 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...
