Saying, ďIím sorryĒ, comes easy Iím told-
For some people maybe thatís true.
Maybe, ďIím sorryĒ, had power to changeÖ
The problems I once had with you.

Those two little words, are all that it takes-
To sometimes, make right; things, gone wrong.
Two words, or a thousand, that I wouldnít sayÖ
And now, I have waited too long.

Iím sorry, my dear, that my heart was so hard-
My pride so unyeilding, and coldÖ
I would not bow, so I broke in the end,
Now sorrow is taking itís toll.

Iím sorry I hurt you. I did not intend-
To bring any pain to your heart.
But drifters and losers, good husbands donít make-
We both should have known from the start.

I promised to show you the world, and I did.
One that, you never had seen.
The side, which is sordid, most people keep hid-
The one of which youíd never dreamed.

Iím sorry, youíre gone now, and Iím all alone.
My selfishness brought on this stateÖ
Iím sorry, so sorry, how easy it comes-
Now that I know itís too late.

Excellent writing.  I too had a hard heart and lost a woman I loved.
I remain sorry that I couldn't say it than and even though its not too late to say it now I missed the opportunity to say it at the correct time.   James

Gunslinger, you sure have a talent with
your pen -
This is a sad tale of woe - of regrets.
and well written.  Enjoyed.

Those two words are probably the hardest in the world to say. It's a shame, though, because they have so much power in them. Great poem, John!
