But only another birth"

I’m sorry I took the last cookie when you said no.
I’m sorry I have a bad temper; sometimes I blow.
I’m sorry I didn’t like the dress I got for my birthday.
I’m sorry I didn’t believe you weren’t okay.

I’m sorry for the scars I left in your heart.
I’m sorry It was me who ripped you apart.
I’m sorry I didn’t know how to help you.
I’m sorry I lost the only person I knew.

I’m sorry I didn’t save you.
I would have if I had a clue.
I’m so sorry you never smiled.
I’m so sorry I never saw you wild.

I’m beyond sorry that you didn’t think I care.
I’m beyond sorry you fell down the stairs.

I’m beyond sorry that you’ll never know this.
I’m beyond sorry even though you’re in bliss.

I can't say sorry now, because you’re gone.
If I could display all my wrongs I’d love dawn.

I hate the morning because you aren’t there.
Sometimes the pain is so hard to bear.

I’m sorry I told you lies to cover up my feelings.
I know you'd still love me despite my awful dealings.

I’m so sorry for writing this poem; It probably breaks your heart.
But I’m so sad, and this, for me, is a good start.

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

I love it!!! And when someone says sorry, they're also saying I did it. This is bitterswet, very beautiful. Wondeful job! ^_^ thanks for sharing this!

I like how they didnt say sorry till they were gone because i feel people now dont feel the need to say sory so they never apologize for all the bad thigs they did until it's too late.

I like it a good amount! I feel that this has a lot of emotion, and had a lot of heart in it. Just a little repetitive and a little say..... mother goose-y with it's rhyming. Too much end rhyme, but it's still a pretty good poem. I give it a 3.75/5
