POEM 297: BECAUSE I OWE YOU ONE FOR ALL
that God would heal your heart and give your pain to me.
If I could do anything, I’d undo the pain I caused
and restore again the glow you’ve lost.
If I could do everything, I’d never lose complete faith in you,
like I did when away I flew.
We didn’t always get along behind closed doors
but you taught me what affection really was.
Conscience reminds me on every nightfall
that, for the hell I put you through, I owe you one for all
But a deed done cannot be undone
and hurting words spoken cannot be recalled.
