Forgive me Dear

By Tony DeLorger © 2011


By way of apology I do regret,

my words of malice and secrets kept.

But worry not my dear doubloon,

I leave you now to give you room.


To find yourself even though not lost,

your mental heath has come at cost.

The journey you have put me through,

is worth ten times what you withdrew.


Forgive me dear for countless wrongs,

aligned with penalty of death belong.

I worked and slaved to give you all,

neglected and ignored my effort small.


For it is my duty to complete your life,

protect you from your mistakes and strife.

To pad the seat on which you sit,

and sweetly smile while you give me shit.


And now it’s done and you were found,

no change appeared in fact you drowned.

In all your chaotic and senseless moves,

reality can bite not always soothe.


But for me I live with open eyes,

not carry, blame or plain despise.

For what you’ve done has set me free,

and truth unfolds for me to see.


So forgive me dear for all I’ve done,

to escape your mess not come undone.

For love will I remember most,

the heartache and pain a small price to boast.


I am found, and I wasn’t even lost.
