  I canít change the past
I canít make the wrongs fade away
I can only hope that our love will last
And maybe we can see another day

Iím an evil man something I cannot hide
Iíve done an uncountalbe number of wrongs
Each wrong I have paid dearly for
Each wrong I have learned a grand lesson from
Iíve made so many mistakes I donít deserve anything
But yet what man hasnít
what man can say I am perfect
no man can make the claim honestly

I canít change the past
I canít make the wrongs fade away
I can only hope that our love will last
And maybe we can see another day

This wrong Iíve commited has hurt you so
The pain you feel is my fault
I have no excuses for excuses turn to lies
All I can do is feel the sorrow
And pray that maybe somehow God will help us both
I see your tears and I feel helpless
I see your anger and I feel scared
I wonder do you see my sorrow
Do you see the deep rooted pain in me
Do you see the price Iíve paid for this wrong
Do you understand that Iím truly sorry

I canít change the past
I canít make the wrongs fade away
I can only hope that our love will last
And maybe we can see another day

  this poem was written after i had made a big mistake, it was my only way of apologizing, because speaking words had failed me.
