Sorry for the past


My life now poised between life and death
I know not which, it matters not
What matters most is what has past, and what may lie ahead
And how I lived my life now past and also live the future

I think of all the hurt and pain I know I caused for others
I’ve hurt the ones I love the most, and others not so loved
I’ve caused them pain as well as grief – I failed them when in need
On looking back it’s very clear I know what I have done

I can’t undo the past it’s gone – I can’t undo the hurt
To make amends, it’s too late now – To try will bear no fruit
It’s too late now, its past it’s gone, nothing can be done
Except to say forgive me please – I am really sorry
