The Feud

THE FEUD

“Life is too short” you hear people say

Yet families and friends fall out every day

As time goes by and life moves on

You wonder how on Earth the whole thing began

With every argument there are always two sides

No matter how much you believe you were right

There is a relenting period that very often passes

Because you were too proud to ask for forgiveness

So the saga continues, blown out of proportion

You lead separate lives as you feel there’s no option

It is sad for those who have honestly tried

Only to have their efforts ignored and denied

But worse for those who just can’t be bothered

To put the past behind them and their best foot forward

Time is the best healer to resolve a fight

Love is the best medicine to make things all right

So if you’re in this predicament and have done your very best

Be patient, be strong and let time do the rest.

Sorry

Sorry

 

I’m sorry for my part in the row

Which looking back seems silly now

A point was made, and yes, I heard

It minced between those hurtful words

I want to put things right again

My heart has never known such pain

Surely you are hurting too

Wondering what we both should do?

I love you and I want you back

We need to get together and chat

To clear the air, air our views

Heal the wounds and kiss the bruise

You know the place where I can be found

I anticipate that you will come round

As day turns to night and night renews

I hope it mends our broken fuse.
