Forgive me
for keeping quiet
when I was expected to say something.

Forgive me
for my too many words
when I should’ve said nothing.
Forgive me
for thanking or recognizing you too late
and for thereby making you think
that everything you’ve done for me was in vain.

Forgive me
for making you sad,
for having disappointed you,
and for having been a pain.

Accept me
in spite of who I am.
Give me a chance to make it right with you.

Notice me
like you once did,
and this time, I won’t again ignore you.
