Bruises

Posted in chick'nmiddle15

This morning, as I was getting dressed, I noticed a big bruise on my knee. What the hell had I done to myself now? I wracked my brain to remember where I got it and finally the answer came to me. My son had built himself a blanket fort in his room and I had crawled in to check it out. Thinking about it more, I did remember a second of pain, but then it was gone and I forgot all about it. What struck me more than anything was the realization that the momentary pain could lead to something that would stay with me for a good week or more.

It got me thinking about bruises – the ones on the inside – and all of the little things we thoughtlessly do to hurt someone’s feelings that for us may be forgotten in an instant (or never even realized to begin with) but can leave lasting marks. We all need to be a little more conscious of how we treat those we love and the impressions we leave.

 

Sorry
by Aiza Seguerra

How thoughtless
I had sometimes been
I hurt you so badly
But now I feel the pain
I talked to you as if
I knew just everything
Maybe I didn’t lose
But I know I didn’t win
How careless I had sometimes been
I gave you the heartache
But I felt the pain
I wanted to tell you
How much I love you so
I know I’d been careless
I forgot to let you know
Sorry, I’m so sorry
I didn’t mean to hurt you
You know I got hurt too
Sorry, I’m so sorry
I didn’t mean to break your heart
Please let me make a brand new start
How crazy I had sometimes been
I hurt you so badly
But now I feel the pain
Next time I’ll know better
I’ll have more time for you
I’ll listen to your heart
Just like you asked me to
Sorry, I’m so sorry
I didn’t mean to hurt you
You know I got hurt too
Sorry, I’m so sorry
Forgive my many faults
And the foolish things I’ve done
I was so insensitive
And I didn’t understand
Sorry, I’m so sorry
I didn’t mean to hurt you
You know I got hurt too
Sorry, I’m so sorry
I didn’t mean to break your heart
Please let me make a brand new start
