Lucy Grainger


apology


i never meant to let you down, you've never said i have but i know i have and im forever sorry for that.when i feel low i think of how much lower you'll fall because i let you down.
it's almost as if i've let you drown because i wasnt watching you.
i'm sorry, you shouldnt have put up with what you do.
you may have been irritating and whetever else but i still loved you.
i feel so guilty because you've seen far too much with your young eyes.
please dont throw your life away and live everyday to the full.
love always, lucy xxx

    For what ever reason you did not speak out does not matter now. Now you can speak out if you choose to and that must be a positive step. Set aside your fear, embrace the future. An emotional read. (Report) Reply

    It isn't too late to speak, is it? The past cannot be changed, but its impact on the future certainly can; words could help to turn a haunting childhood into a determination for a better life. (Report) Reply
