The Apologies Of An Average Joe And A Plain Jane - Poem by Nadia Gray

I'm sorry that I can speak
Of things you don't understand.
I'm sorry I asked you nicely,
Rather than yelling a command.

I'm sorry I called you daily
Trying to be sure that you were okay.
I'm sorry I didn't ignore you,
But rather thought of you all day.

But even more...

I'm sorry that I'm not thin
Like the people on TV.
I'm sorry if I'm too loud or quiet
And not afraid to be me.

I'm sorry if you can't see
The feelings here within my heart.
And even so, I'm still sorry
To have to watch you fall apart.

It is you I adore...

So forgive me for my intellect
And forgive me for my fears
That I'll remain your loyal friend
Still so helpless to your tears.

So forgive me for not being handsome
Nor pretty enough, nor strong.
And forgive me for being a fool,
For being in love with you so darn long.
