I'm Sorry (Letting Go)
I’m sorry I wasn’t a better father,
Or that I wasn’t there for you like you wished,
But Lord knows I tried for your milestones
Trying to make up for what I may have missed.
I’m sorry I couldn’t be there all the time,
Or be there like you always wanted,
Yet I knew our relationship would change
…may be estranged,
But I battled everyday exhausted yet undaunted.
I’m sorry because I chose a different path,
But a young man’s wrath leads to a darker place,
I couldn’t put you through my pain and despair
…it wasn’t fair,
I always felt the blame when I looked at your face.
I’m sorry we all suffered the consequences,
But we’re stronger for the relationships we built,
I know my apologies won’t erase or fix the past
…but at last,
I’m forgiving myself and I'm letting go of this guilt.
