A Poem...A Prayer...Promise!

by Dianne Viljoen
(Cape Town, South Africa)

I've said I am sorry
I'm filled with regret
over the foolish things I've done
and the unkind things I've said

I now live a life hope and
I pray that one day
somehow you'll find a merciful way
to forgive the nasty things I did say

If there is anyone but me who knows me well
then it is you who ought to tell
that, even though it sometimes hurts like hell
my intentions always, always mean well

My heart is broken by the words
I had impulsively spoken
I take full responsibility
for the actions I had chosen

'twas a moment of weakness
a rare one, as a matter of fact
One NEVER to be repeated
