I owe you the biggest apology
that my heart will allow to give,
for all the pain I put you through
instead of the strife you had to live.
I am so deeply sorry
that you became involved in my life,
and I am more remorseful
for forcing you to stay so long.
The signs were so clear all along,
you were desperate to walk away
but I was in too much denial
to open my eyes and see.
I hope you can somehow forgive me,
for my intentions were never to cause you harm,
and I really hope you believe
that I loved you so deeply
from the bottom of my heart,
every single day right from the very start.
