Pain it wells inside of me
Its lifts its ugly head.
His words they speak so deeply
And this is what he said
Oh Mum he says, it’s what you said
So very long ago
It hurt me then, it hurts me still
I just can’t let it go
The memory is so very dim
I can’t remember them
The words that I spoke long ago
That cut my son to threads.
I never could just understand
From whence his pain did come
His angry words, his smoldering hate
That I’ve felt from him so long
I’d like to say, if it’s enough
That I’m very sorry son
I loved you then, I love you now
Can’t take back what I’ve done
I never meant to hurt you,
If only I had known
I’d never have uttered a single word
I wish that you would know it.
I’M SORRY MICHAEL.
