I’m sorry I missed you the other day
I was lost
and couldn’t find my way
Hope I haven’t annoyed you too much
I know it can be hard
I promise we’ll meet up sometime
and I’ll try to plan ahead better
Hope you can forgive me

***

I’m sorry I shouted at you the other day
I was strangled
and my voice couldn’t prevent it
Hope I haven’t frustrated you too much
I know it can be difficult
I promise I’ll act better next time
and I’ll make sure my throat is clear
Hope you can still forgive me

***

I’m sorry I left you the other day
I was trapped
and couldn’t escape
My hands were tied
and my voice was strained
there was an eclipse
and I was left paralysed
Hope I haven’t disappointed you too much
God knows I’ve disappointed myself
I tried to promise you a together
but the dream was shattered from the beginning
all I could offer were pieces
scraps of debris
no glue or tape can fix
It’s annoying, frustrating and disappointing
believe me I know
You don’t have to forgive me
that would be asking for too much
so I hope you could try and forget
just as I have always done
