The Truth

Poem By jeanne harmon

I’m sorry for not being there
I’m sorry for never seeming to care
I’m sorry if you thought I never loved you
For that is surely not true
I’m sorry for always coming home drunk
And how my clothes always stunk
I’m sorry for not believing in you
I’m sorry that we never talked
It seemed as if we were just a couple of strangers wouldn’t you say?
I’m sorry for being hard on you even when you had a bad day
I’m sorry for never trying
I’m sorry for running away when I saw you crying
I’m sorry for leaving you in the dark
Without a light to find your way
I’m sorry for all that I’ve done to you
I’m sorry for never seeing you through
I’m sorry for putting you down
This is for everything I’ve done to you
I'm sorry you never knew the truth and the truth is I Love You.

Comments about The Truth

Melancholy and effective - well done
a penance right? it clears the system.
This is about a father who is sorry for never being there for his daughter. Yes I know I wrote I’ll be there but like I said, these things just come to me.

The Race

Open your eyes and start running
Don’t stop running
Your heart is beating
Your head aching

The Rain

The rain

The rain falls down on me
Time comes and goes

What Holds What

Memories hold true
Moments hold memories
Time holds moments
Past holds time

A Pond

Long since pebbles have touched the water’s surface
Creating ripples as it hits the water
Three friends of old once came here
But will never come back it fears

I'Ll Be There

If ever the world has faded to black and white
If ever you are feeling down
When every smile seems like a frown
I’ll be there
