Forgive Me

by Ken   Oct 25, 2009

Haunting sounds of a failure.
Echoing ever so deep.
Eating away at everything I am.
Eating away at everything I will be.

Letting your life slip through my fingers.
Is something I could never forgive myself for.
I look out towards your new home amongst the clouds
And I ask will you ever forgive me?

Could you ever forgive me for my weakness?
Forgive me for not being able to protect you.
I just wish so much that I had another chance.
I wish that I could have done so much more for you.

I catch myself reaching out to you.
Reaching out to a wish, a dream that I will never attain
Wanting to hold you just one last time.
To feel your warm embrace and soft touch.

I wish I could have told you how much I loved you.
How much a part of me you really were.
Could you ever forgive me a failure?

    These are words that almost every poet has lived before whether we want to admit it or not. I think you did a great job writting your emotions and they seemed real and not just a bunch of polished words. Nice write man, keep it up. Peace.
