The phrase "I'm Sorry" you may agree
Has turned into a social amenity
We say "I'm Sorry" more than Brenda Lee
Which was a hit song for her back in 1960.

You may not want to acknowledge the damage you've done,
The pain that you've brought to spouse, daughter or son.
But if you've done wrong you must see the light
To take a pro-active step to returning things right

There will remain feelings that you can't erase,
Lost time and memories that you can't replace.
Because of your actions, now nothing's the same.
Take a look in your mirror and know that there's blame.

Maybe those words are ones you won't do.
They may not exist in your new age point of view.
Or, don't want to hear the anger, it might make you blue.
It's easier to leave your loved ones hurt and askew.

Just saying I'm sorry is not all it takes,
No magical words to make gone the mistakes.
Begin the road back with those words from your heart.
They do not mark the end but maybe a start.

Your family's your bond like no other glue.
A great family we had, can we renew?
Deep in your heart you know what to do.
If I can say "I'm sorry," then I think you can too.

I was just like that mad at the world, but being mad at the world will not bring the one's we love back or the one we miss. Going on with life is all you can do. Work and try to make your self as happy as you can.
