Life of Recovery
I am sorry for not being the greatest son
I know it's been hard for you and dad
To watch me self destruct in front of your very own eyes
I know you blamed yourself when my life went bad.
I am sorry for not being the greatest friend
I know I have violated the trust you put in me
But I hope in time that you will see
A good friend is what I can be.
I am sorry for not being the greatest brother
I know in my footsteps you had hoped to walk
I hope you don't go down the path I took
It leads to a demon you don't want to unlock.
I am sorry for not being the greatest dad
I've spent countless nights with so many tears
I brought you into a world with so much love
But you have grown up with so much fear.
I also have to say that I am sorry to me
The goals I had for myself were so much more
Somewhere in my life when I should have turned right
I turned left and went through the wrong door.
To all these people I love so much
I am grateful you never gave up on me
I am learning again to be the person you loved
In this new life of recovery.
