Will Sorry Ever Be Enough?

As I sit here and think
Of all the lies that you told
The nights I would lay awake and wonder
The broken promises thrown out with last weeks recycling

Would I magically emerge as the bigger person?
Should I have to be the bigger person?
Wasn't I always that bigger person?
I think...
Would I know sorry if I heard it?
Are there enough words in the world to make us right again?
Maybe it is me...
Maybe I have to swallow my pride just one last time
Maybe this time I have to believe you
Maybe you are right
Maybe I have to have hope.

The poem “Is Sorry Enough?” is a keeper. It hits the nail right on the head, relating to me and my brother. Since my father passed, my brother’s wife and him been spreading lie after lie. I don't think we will ever be close again. It all has to do with money and the will. I would love if he sent me a poem like this. I could dream, right? Thanks for the poem.
