About the Poem

I wrote this poem after I made a terrible mistake. I drank a little too much one night and I tried to make more out of a friendship with one of my best guy friends. Things happened and now he cannot talk to me. I can no longer apologize, for it is not doing any good, and I was at a loss for words to what to say to him. So, I wrote this poem

The Mistake You Cannot Forget

You say you cannot forget
And you aren't ready to forgive
But I need your friendship
More than you'll even know
I need you there to live

Without you by my side today
Life's been going, oh so slow
I miss your calls
Our endless talks
The places we would go

You can't even bear to look at me,
And I know my mistake
For because of one night,
And a few thoughtless actions,
When you saw me you ran and hid

I know we cannot take it back
As much as we would like to
But we could forget
And start all over
Just friends, that's me and you

If time is what you need,
Then I guess that's what you'll get
But I need you there for me soon,
My friend,
I hope you will forget.

This poem is so true, but people need to forgive and forget they are hurt that may be true but you need people to be there with you to help. Sometimes it may be that person you need to spend time with.
