Long before I came Into your battered life Your heart was Already broken!
I did not cause the wounds But I tried to mend them With real love and compassion And even going out my ways To make you happy!
Now, you come to me With so many demands And silly expectations Like I have to be accountable For your past misjudgment That led you to a poor choice Before I arrived!
I have come to you, plainly, As I really am, honest And a caring human being Filled with tender feelings And understanding For your past mistakes Without promising you A rose garden or Impossible things!
I did for you All what I could: I tried to put All the pieces together That were scattered Everywhere even In unknown places!
I wiped out your tears, Gave you confidence And restored your smile Back to your weary face As I sadly found you When the Sun and Moon Were absent in your Shadowed world! Now, the question remains: Am I to be blamed?
