for keeping quiet
when I was expected to say something.
for my too many words
when I should’ve said nothing.
for thanking or recognizing you too late
and for thereby making you think
that everything you’ve done for me was in vain.
for making you sad,
for having disappointed you,
and for having been a pain.
in spite of who I am.
Give me a chance to make it right with you.
like you once did,
and this time, I won’t again ignore you.
