Please Forgive Me, One More Time

What is the issue?
Riccardo Fissore

Please forgive me, one more time
for all the things I said
and all the things I didn’t.
Forgive me for thinking you’ll always stay.

Please forgive me, one more time
for the days I didn’t appreciate you
and the nights I took your love for granted.
Forgive me for thinking I could replace you.

Please forgive me, one more time
for leaving instead of trying harder
for giving up when I should’ve fought for you.
For being so weak thinking that leaving was strength.

Please forgive me, one more time
for letting you go, for not coming back sooner,
for not knowing that I had everything
when I had you.

Please forgive me, one last time
I promise this time, I’ll never leave.
This time, I’ll make up for all the years
I was supposed to be loving and holding you.  TC mark
