Lately I have had too much time on hand
Keep going over the time spent with you
And somehow can’t get over the fact
Have hurt you so much knowingly
As well as unknowingly.
In my arrogance then
Thought you needed to be taught a lesson
For not living by my rulebook.
You never complained
Never uttered a word
But that wounded look in your eyes
Haunts me now day and night.
I stay awake willing away your eyes
But your silent tear-filled gaze
Seems to question me all the time.
I know my behaviour cannot be forgiven
But I have to ask you one last time,
“Can we press rewind and restart, please?”
