I will always love you, I will never break your heart
I thought we would never grow apart
Broke your heart and told you awful lies
Broken promises and tears running down your eyes
A lonely house and sleepless nights

I’m sorry I cause you so much pain
I’m sorry I became a dishonorable man
I’m sorry I caused you so much stress
My life became a total mess
From now on, I’m going to do my best to change
Just give me an opportunity and a second chance
I like to see you smile
And for you I will go the second mile
I think of you the most when I pray
Praying we were happy and everything was the same

Don’t worry I will be home soon
To show you my love for you!
By giving you kisses and many hugs
I will be there before another tear drops.

This poem is dedicated to my mother, who has been there for me, always. Never given up on me, helping me in the good times and bad times.
