Forgive me for all my past mistakes
That wounded deeply inside your heart;
Wishing I could re-clock the mists
Of ages to paint them afresh;
Yet the now can’t walk me back,
But ahead, learning from my darkest eras.
Forgive me for each pain I pasted in your soul,
And the loneliness you felt within.
Forgive me for loosing control,
For a moment I became a stranger to you,
Although cracks stretched us apart,
With no healing to entertain pains I feel,
Yet hard to accept we are no more together.
Forgive me for the way things were,
And the selfishness that you endured.
Forgive me for coursing a rainy weather
That cried your season with gentle havoc;
Punching your joy in massive fists
That left bruises and gashes in our union.
Forgive me for the heart I broke,
That shattered with harshly words I uttered.
Forgive me for the love you missed,
If I could, I’ll pay it back in full to you.
Forgive me for I wasn't the man you deserved,
Flood our yesterday in pieces of molecules,
For non will kiss us with ugliness again,
Yet I’m ready to repent and love
Like I’ve never been hurt before.
Forgive me for the way I quitted our relationship,
I've never felt so much regret in my life,
But with you I’ll be able to be gentle again;
So baby, please, forgive me.
