SORRY

He said it was him
it was him and he knew it
he said it was all his
all his and he owned it
he said he was sorry for pressing it on me
for telling me I’m crazy
that I don’t understand HERSTORY

he said he was sorry and he meant it too
he told me it was what he realized to be TRUE
he said he was sorry but I felt really glad
for at that moment a man was built of a wee little lad

he said he was sorry and in that he just knew
all the past blaming games must never’ve been true
he said he was sorry and the years melted away.
All I have are my wrinkles to mark the passage of the day

Time with forgiveness never did run smooth
yet time with forgiveness is the maker of YOUTH.
