After Time
CC Devine

He looks at her like it’s the first time.
Her smile, her laugh, her smell;
It’s been a while.
Nervousness, butterflies,
He doesn’t know what to do.
Walks up to her, holds her tight,
Feels like something new.

Staring into each other’s eyes,
She feels the same, quite a surprise.
He holds her close, lips touch, almost.
He whispers, “I’ve missed you.”
He won’t let her go.

She feels safe, like this is right.
They both lean in.
It made their night.

One Last Chance
Jacob Greenberg

I’m sorry you can’t trust me
And won’t ever let me in.
I’m sorry you don’t believe in me
And that I could not win.

I’m sorry for not being perfect
And for not being able to break your fears.
I’m sorry for messing up
And causing all your tears.

I’m sorry I can’t fix it
And make you want to stay.
I’m sorry I wasn’t good enough
And now I have to pay.

I’m sorry I ever doubted it
And made you second guess.
I’m sorry I was so stupid.
You haven’t seen my best.

I Still Love You
Leilani Hermosa Petersen

Of all the things I’ve ever said,
Of all the tears I’ve ever shed,
Of all the things I did to you,
I want you to know that I still love you.

Of all the days we fought and cried,
Of all the days I wished I’d died,
Of all the things you did to pull me through,
I don’t believe it, but I still love you.

Deeply Hurt
Shishir

Today between us there is no comfort.
I know you have been very deeply hurt.
It will take time for wounds to heal.
Lost and lonely you may also feel,
But let me tell you, days will soon come
When buds of our love will again blossom.
Hate can never conquer this great passion.
It will finally lose in emotional war of this bastion.
I will then return all your happiness
And our true love God will always bless.

Sorry
Whitestar

I love you so very much,
Even though at times I do things that hurt.
I try so hard to hope that you always see
How much you being in my life means to me.
I am sorry yet again for causing you pain.
That is the last thing I ever wanted to do.
Even when I am trying to look out for you and do the right thing,
I mess up; I am sorry for that too.
I hope that you still know how much I love and cherish you,
Like nothing else in my life gives me the thrill of being loved by you.
So I hope that you listen and see it in my eyes,
This sincere apology that comes with tears from deep inside.

Love & Friendship
Wayne Burton

when the person you love seems to hurt you the most
and life isn’t looking too bright,
you have to remember to forgive and forget
because you know you’re not always right,
sometimes it’s hard to admit that you’re wrong
and bring all of your faults to the light,
so before you pass judgment you have to remember
that the finger you point is still yours at the end of the night,
down through the years you’ll think you’ve lost your mind
and your love will surely be tested,
how it turns out is all up to you
because it depends on what you’ve invested,
for if it’s true love your actions will show
you’ll be there right to the end,
because before fiancé, husband or wife
you have to be called a friend.

Shallow Sorry
Sean O’Brien

If my words were like a nail
Your feelings were the board
No matter how many times I say I’m sorry
Deep down you still are scored

I never meant to hurt you
I’ll never understand
We’ve been through so much together
What I’d give to take your hand!

You know you are my best friend
My soul is empty and lost
I was so hurt and angry
Not knowing what it cost

Darling, don’t give up yet
Please believe in me
I will show you what love is
Give me time and you will see

Take Me Back
Katie

How could I be so stupid
To let you slip away?
I had you in my arms,
But I let you slip away.

I want you back,
But now it’s too late.
I’ve already said goodbye,
And now love has turned to hate.

I want to go back in time
And fix all that was wrong,
Change all of my regrets
So we didn’t fight as long.

The regrets are what messed it up,
And they were all my fault.
I was so immature;
I should have acted like an adult.

I broke my own heart
When I walked out on you.
Now it’s too late,
And I can’t undo.

I still love you,
But nobody knows
We are no longer together
Because of what I chose.

It was a bad decision,
And now I want you here.
Never far away,
Always near.

So please take me back,
And catch me when I fall
‘Cause I need you right now
More than anything at all.

I’m Sorry
Casey Lee Watson

Words I say don’t always come out right,
and they always seem to start a fight.

I know what I say can hurt you,
and believe me, I don’t mean to.

The last thing I want to see is you sad
because I can’t control myself when I get mad.

I know all you want from me is my best,
but right now I need time to rest.

Everything is happening so fast.
How long will it all last?

Everything is falling apart.
It’s ripping my heart.

I have so much anger built up; I have to get it out,
and all I want to do is scream and shout.

I take it out on you,
even though I don’t mean to.

I’m sorry for causing you more stress.
I know even you need time to rest.

Lost A Part Of Me
Joseph

I lay next to you watching you lay.
why couldn’t I have done everything to make you stay?
I look back at all our smiles and frowns,
wondering how we made it through all the ups and downs.
I gently brush your hair behind your ear.
Loosing you was my one and only fear.
Why do all things great come to an end?
You were my baby, my wife, even my friend.
How could I not see you slowly fading away.
I made myself believe everything was okay,
but I was too blind to see
you were slowly slipping away from me.
Now you’re gone, you went away.
I am sorry for leading you astray,
but I must move forward and learn from my mistake.
I must learn to live with my heartache.
Thank you for letting be a part of your life.
I am glad to have had you for my wife.
Always and forever, baby, you’ll always be mine.
I’ll always love you, even past the end of time.

Stupidity
Matt

Every day I wake up
Hoping to get a fresh start
Praying I can undo
The mistakes I’ve done to you.

Every day it’s the same thing.
My memories come to haunt me.
I never knew it’d come to this,
And now I’m regretting it.

Basically, I’m saying sorry.
Sorry for my stupidity.
If you find it in your heart to forgive me,
I thank you with full sincerity.

But if you find it too hard to do so,
It’s all right, who can blame you?
If there’s even anyone to blame, it’s me..
Me and my stupidity.

I’m Sorry
Jaz

I’m saying sorry first.
I’m saying sorry last.
I’m saying sorry for the future,
but mainly for the past.

I’m sorry that I wasn’t there for you,
and I’m sorry for not listening
when you needed it the most.
You were right, and you had the right to be mad.

I’m sorry that you felt the need to apologize,
and I’m sorry that you were hurt.
I’m sorry that I can only see the good
and always try to avoid the bad.

I’m saying sorry for all my mistakes.
I’m saying sorry for being blinded,
blinded by the perfect thought of you and me,
when really we don’t have a chance.

I’m the stupid one.
I let you down, and I feel it deep within me.
We both made some errors and said something wrong, but that’s how life is.

Nobody’s perfect,
not even me and you,
so I’m sorry for that took
and I’m sorry for everything but …

Please forgive me.
We can change things back to normal.
I’m sorry if this is not what you want,
But it’s the only thing I can think of.

One More Chance
Christian M. Mitewu

I know that I deserved my fate,
But please do let me try again.
Although right now may be too late,
You don’t love me like you loved then.

Life’s been futile since you walked out.
Why did you have to leave so soon?
You ever returning is something I doubt.
Depressed, I stare at the blue moon.

When you left, I sadly sighed.
I’d lost a love I’d loved for long.
When I was lost, you were my guide.
You’d set me right when I’d go wrong.

I’m sorry for all of the pain
I’ve caused’ please open the door.
I’ve knocked and knocked but all in vain;
You don’t answer anymore.

Please press pause and then rewind.
Right back to before
Before I’d made you lose your mind
Before you’d shut the door,

I know that I deserved my fate,
But please do let me try again.
Although right now may be too late,
You don’t love me like you loved then.

Incomplete
Cory

My life was complete,
But now it’s not.
I lost it all, because I fought.
She made me alive.
Now I am dead.
I’m lying here,
Crying in my bed.
Life is worthless.
Why should I try?
All I want to do
Is lie here and die.
It has only been two days,
But that is all I need
To get a last chance
Before she leaves.
One last chance
To turn it around,
Hoping she won’t turn me down.
All I want to do
Is hold her tight
And make her dreams
Come true tonight,
That once and for all
I can make her happy
Instead of screaming, yelling,
Making life crappy.
I’m sorry for what I have done.
This is coming from my heart.
I’m just asking
For a brand new start,
For you are my life.
Without you I am nothing
So give it one last chance,
And I will make it into something.
I love you too much.
I can’t let you go,
So look into my eyes,
And say I love you so.

I’m Sorry
Samantha Garrison

I’m sorry that I hurt you
I’m sorry that I care
I’m sorry that I want to
No matter what be there.

I’m sorry for not being perfect,
I’m sorry that I’m a disappointment,
I’m sorry I’m not always honest.

I’m sorry that you hate me
I’m sorry that I lied
I’m sorry that you now see
How much that I have cried.

I’m sorry I’m not good enough,
I’m sorry I let you down,
I’m sorry for my tears,
And I’m sorry for my fears.

I’m sorry that I’m human,
And I’m sorry that I care,
I’m sorry for not making you laugh.

I’m sorry for being hardheaded
I’m sorry for never listening
I’m sorry that I’m like her, I’m trying very hard to change it.

I’m sorry for being protective,
And I’m sorry for being cautious.
I’m sorry for forgetting things, and asking stupid questions.

I’m sorry that I dropped out of school,
And I’m sorry I’m not smart.
I’m sorry that I make you say, “We’re done, it’s too hard.”
I’m sorry that I never cheated while we were apart,

I’m sorry that I live for you and could never live without
I’m sorry for the mistakes I made, and that they broke your heart.
I’m sorry and I would be glad to do all that I can.

I want to make you love me
like you did once before
I want to make your heart see
what mine is living for.

My Mistake
Christina

I admit I made a mistake-
overstepping some boundaries,
which made me look fake.

I always said I would never do the things I did,
and that is the reason it is so hard for you to forgive.

It’s been so long,
so many times we said we’d try
only to turn around
and make each other cry.

Remember how it was when we first started out,
so much alike, we shared every thought.
We fell so fast, maybe fell in love too soon,
Made a huge decision that now we cannot undo.

I admit my mistakes, but can you admit yours?
I have paid for what I’ve done
as you have paid for yours,
so why is it like this?
We can’t even talk.
You call me liar and say you don’t care.
all the while my love for you is still there.

I never meant to hurt you,
never wanted to cause you any pain.
Since you left me 5 months ago,
my life hasn’t been the same.

I owe you so much.
I have so much to prove to you,
so I will end this with the hardest thing I’ll ever have to do.
Goodbye baby…I will always be in love with you.

I Am Sorry
Leon Weate

Every time I see the pain in your eyes,
A little part of my heart dies.
No matter how hard and how often you try,
All I seem to do is make you cry.

You risk so much and take such chance
To share your heart and your romance.
You share your hopes and dreams and fears
And let me in to all that’s dear.

All I seem to do is be mean and cold,
To fail to cherish, fail to hold.
I seem to fail to put you first.
You act your best; I am my worst.

My mouth contradicts my heart.
My actions and thoughts so far apart.
I love you with every part of me,
Yet act so cruel and thoughtlessly.

I dream of you all night and day
And hang on every word you say,
Yet all you see is selfishness and arrogance,
Casual disdain and ignorance.

Assumption and judgment and everything’s a test.
No matter what you do, you’re always second best.
No matter how hard you try, it’s never enough.
I never hear your protestations of love.

I say I love you and cherish all of our dreams,
Yet act as if I can’t hear your screams
Of need and want and stability and trust.
My plans never materialize, my promises rust.

I scream at myself at how stupid I am
For risking your love, for risking your hand,
And I pray every day that you never see
That I need you more than you need me.

I bare my heart and my soul to you
To say sorry for what I did and for what I do.
I have no excuses and hide no more.
All I can offer is my love for evermore.
