I’m so sorry I lost you out of the blue
In the hurried, blurried shuffle of life!
I’m so sorry for being so chary and wary,
Not paying heed to the very merry you!
To me you used to belong, but somewhere
Along the fine line of passing days
I lost you in the haze of busy ways;
By all the starry host above, I’m sorry!
Now thunder rolls at lightning flash
And I crash and burn, trying to turn
Back the unforgiving hands of time
That chime my demise; I was so unwise!
Can you ever forgive and give me . . .
Oh, give me one more chance, though
You have every right to lance my heart;
Turn night to day, let me play my part!
