A poem - not meant to be perfect, just meant to share emotion.
I'm Sorry
I wanted to make you happy
but my life is such a mess
that being with me
brought you so much stress

For every ounce of laughter
there was a gallon of tears
For months you held me close,
tried to ease my fears

I craved your smile, your love
t'was a balm to my shame
dumped my sorrow like a boulder
on your too willing shoulder

Dependent on each other
pain transferred into you
not your cross to bear
but I let it pass on through

I never want to lose you
can't bear to say goodbye
so I'll learn to smile
through the pain, I'll lie
