Self-Love: I’m Sorry

I’m sorry it’s the end of the day,

And you’re asleep worlds away.

I forgot to tell you how much I love you,

I never held you close and still.

There were angry words exchanged,

as I was worn down by the stresses of today.

It’s all my fault you ran away in tears,

and I was left feeling empty with a pile of dishes to clean.

And now I stand by your bedside in the half-light,

Wishing I could hear you laugh.

But now I’m standing in the stillness,

with darkness pressing in on all sides.

“I promise, I do love you,” I whisper in your ear.

Because it’s true,

Nothing makes me more fulfilled.

To hear your feet scampering down the stairs,

or your jokes and smiles throughout the day.

I brush my tear from off your cheek,

as I kiss behind your ear.

You are my world,

And tomorrow I pray I won’t forget that.
