If I….

If I was to die

Then look back at my life

I’d see it’s filled with more truth than lies,

There were times of strife

All of which came to an end

In the end it was me alone, no home, no family, no wife,

So much damage I’ve done never to mend

One day I hope they’d forgive me

Such is the failings of a mind that was never made to bend,

One day I hope they’ll see

It wasn’t all for naught

I tried the best I could in every failing and every glee,

For there was love in every lesson I taught

And always you in my every single thought.
