"I’m Sorry” Is All I Needed to Hear (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)


Shhh…you don’t have to cry
No need for us to visit the past
You’ve become the one who forgets
I’ve become the man who forgives
Wipe up your face and show me a smile
‘Cause we’re different people now

Hate is the biggest of burdens
Smashing you down into isolation
Spiritually destined to hell on earth
What good is a day on earth alone?
No way, no how, I don’t want that life
Life is short and can’t be spent angry

As long as we live in the present
Our faith is renewed in our future
I will always let you grow into you
I’m not here to watch you suffer
You don’t have to shed a tear
“I’m sorry” is all I needed to hear

When I find myself alone in the pain. When I feel like I have absolutely no one to turn to. When I wish the hurt would stop. When I don't know what to do. When I feel completely lost. When my eyes just won't stop welling up. When I don't want to bother anyone with my hurt, my pain. When I know that everyone has other responsibilities. I don't want to interrupt them with my hurt. When I have thought about all of the ways to make the hurt stop. When I am tired of putting on my strong face for others to see. When I am tired of the tears welling up, filling already soggy eyes. When I am tired of the tears, tears that roll non-stop over my cheeks. When I don't want to hurt the ones that I love the most. When it seems like those who are supposed to love me don't get who I am. When no one has any idea of the pain my smile hides. When I am worried about being forever labeled by others. When I am the one that everyone counts on for strength. When I never show any weak…
