POEM: NOW I UNDERSTAND

mkayFJWNow I understand
What I should have known from the start
To those memories I’m taken back
The hurt and pain that I have caused
Those moments in your darkest hours
To have been there would have been better
Yet in my selfishness I drifted away
Leaving you along to cope with the unknown
Yet today I can declare
Now I understand
To be by your side I will always stand
To be your light in the darkest night
Count on me my dear love
From now on I know what I need
To be that need to care for your every need
My love
My treasure
Now I understand
No longer selfish
But today I know
That in me you live and you in me
You are my flesh and I am yours
My love
Now I understand
