How Does "I'm Sorry" Unbreak A Heart?

by 2weak2smile   Jun 7, 2008

What will become of me?
Stuck here inside myself,
I am me, but not, how can it be?
That so quick I have changed,

I dont think I like this,
Who I have become, these thoughts,
Of not waking, and drift away,
This fight I thought, Id already fought.

Its seems, that fight I lost,
There is nothing left in me,
All this hurt and pain I have cost,
I cant quit now, too many wrongs to right.

As I write now, tears well in my eyes,
I havent tasted their saltiness for years,
As I realise the hurt of my lies,
How do I know which sorry to say first?

Do I say it to my daughter whos eight?
Apologise for her Mum and I not working,
But to her innocent smile, I wish to relate,
Is she to too young to know its from the heart?

Do I say it to my four month old?
Who didnt ask for any of this,
Will she love me no matter what?
Or grow to hate me for my weakness?

Maybe its to my youngest, at only eight weeks,
Such a gorgeous innocent little being,
But she wouldnt understand the words Id speak,
Will she too grow to hate her weak Dad?

Or do I say it to the mothers?
I left, to raise my daughters,
Is me being there enough for them,
To know I to am broken by this?

How does 'Im sorry' unbreak a heart?
How does 'Im sorry' give back years?
How does 'Im sorry' take it all away?
How do I know where to start, to make this right?

* My tattered and burned wings unable to fly free
* Till these wrongs are right, sentenced to eternity,
* To the girls in my life, I have wronged so bad,
* I am broken, I am forever ....... sorry

    It's beutiful, the poem... it would be nice if you just appoligised, it might not help you or them to move on, but it will give you great relief to just admit you were wrong, and I'm sure your girls and their mothers will be happy that you said that cuz then they'll know that you have a heart and that you care... that is enough to unbreak any heart.

    The girls love you, I promise you that! You will always be their father and no one can strip you of that. You have all the time in the world to make it right. I know you well and that you wont give up this fight. You have the strength to get through this hard time. And at the end love from all three girls is what you will find!
