Overdue apologies

It’s not your fault.

Please, when you kneel before the tombstone

Crying out to the northern winds

and beg skies to reconsider

remember, the fault doesn’t lie with you.

It’s me.

I understand, it’s a cliché phrase

meant to deceive the cowardly heart

from taking responsibility for the pain caused

However, it’s never been more true.

You were enough.

Listen! The deeds I have done

The wounds I have inflicted upon myself

had nothing to do with you and your love

if anything you kept me afloat all this time.

You were mine.

I am sorry I couldn’t give you my life

your dedication nurtured, postponing agony

I am forever grateful to you beloved

But death claimed me long before I’ve met you.

It’s not your fault.
