I Am Sorry for Hurting You (My Love)

I am sorry if loving him hurts you.
I thought I could never love anyone
Until fate brought us together, but
I never meant to fall for his jokes
And sweet smile. Another blue
Sky was something I want to run
Far away from. I was down in a rut
I could not escape from. The strokes
Of his paintbrush brought me back
To life. I am sorry if you had to keep
Your distance from our love because
It burned, but did not last for long.
I am sorry if we fell off the tracks
In the middle of the night. I fell deep
For someone who had me pause
Before saying sorry. I was the strong
One who should never be sorry for
How she felt or who she should love.
I am sorry that I opened the door.
I was only meant to fly like a dove.
