I'M Sorry

I'm sorry for your hurt,
I'm sorry for your grief.
I'm sorry that your pain,
Was no one else's belief.

I'm sorry I didn't help,
I'm sorry I didn't listen.
I'm sorry I didn't see your tears,
Whenever they did glisten.

I'm sorry I never hugged you tight,
I'm sorry I never held you close.
I'm sorry that to everyone else,
You were nothing but a faded ghost.

I'm sorry I couldn't heal your wounds,
I'm sorry I couldn't absorb your anguish.
I'm sorry I couldn't recognize your broken smile,
For all the times i misread your hidden language.
