My Sweetest Pumpkin and Lovress

And so, here I am (finally)..
on my knees,
broken and in tears.


Don’t get me wrong.
I am not trying to appease anyone.
I’m neither trying to win favours,
nor attract attention;
for who am I?

I have solely come to apologize.

To apologize for my many wrongs,
my ill doings.
My carelessness and recklessness:
Yes, my cold-heartedness.

I have disappointed you.
But even more than that,
I have disappointed myself.

Don’t get me wrong.
I am not looking for forgiveness,
that would be too much to ask for.. now.

Neither am I looking for strangers to defend me,
to join me in begging you to reconsider me.

No, I am doing none of that.

All I want is for you to hear me out,
right here, right now.

Actually, I have nothing to say..

I beg you,
yes beseech you:
just look within,
and see my broken heart,
feel my pain;
and wipe away my shame.


I have wronged you.
I have spat in your face.
Yes, I have been fake.

And so, all I can ask for is your mercy.

I was not there to comfort you,
encourage you,
pray for you.

I was not there to hail you,
rejoice with you,
and sing to you.

It wasn’t enough that I wasn’t there.
No, I had to forget it to.

I am so sorry I missed your birthday, Aima-pumpkin.

And so, all that is left for me to say is,
I pray you forgive me some day.
No, surely not today, for I must suffer my forgetfulness small.

But hopefully tomorrow..
or the day after.

I’ll be here waiting, until you let me back..
into your softest-of-all heart.

    Don’t let anyone push you into deciding anything.
    Just look into your heart and you will find the answer there.
    May God guide you.
