Sorry! - Ed Iacona

The phrase 'I'm Sorry' you may agree

Has turned into a social amenity

We say 'I'm Sorry' more than Brenda Lee

Which was a hit song for her back in 1960.

You may not want to acknowledge the damage you've done

The pain that you've brought to spouse, daughter or son.

But if you've done wrong you must see the light

To take a pro-active step to returning things right

There will remain feelings that you can't erase

Lost time and memories that you can't replace

Because of your actions now nothings the same

Take a look in your mirror and know that there's blame.

Maybe those words are one's you won't do.

They may not exist in your new age point of view.

Or, don't want to hear the anger, it might make you blue

It's easier to leave your loved ones hurt and askew.

Just saying I'm sorry is not all it takes

No magical words to make gone the mistakes

Begin the road back with those words from your heart

They do not mark the end but maybe a start.

Your family's your bond like no other glue.

A great family we had, can we renew?

Deep in your heart you know what to do.

If I can say 'I'm sorry' then I think you can too.

Your writing is so much the facts of
life...One can't do it alone..It takes
two..Sometimes the other just doesn't
care enough to make amends...nice write..
