I’m sorry for not picking up the phone.
I’m sorry I didn’t know that you were sick.
I’m sorry that when I found out I listened to others instead of my heart.
I’m sorry I came home too late.
I’m sorry that trying to be strong made me distant.
I’m sorry I lied to you that he sent you those flowers – I wanted you to think I’d be okay.

I’m sorry that I never realised how much you meant until you were gone.
I’m sorry that I can never tell you how much I love you.
