Some important words that are hard to say
"Some Words Are Hard To Say" by jaybird1
It's hard to say "I'm sorry"
with your conscience on the run
and it's hard to seek forgiveness,
for some thoughtless deed you've done.

It's hard to say "I thank you",
when a blessing is bestowed
and it's hard to say "I love you",
on lifes rough and rocky road

Lifes trials and tribulations
oft time sets our hearts in stone
and that robs us of the feelings,
that are needed to atone.

So, let me say "I'm sorry",
if I've caused somebody pain
and if I can earn forgiveness,
that would be a special gain-

And say to life "I thank you"
for the good things on the way.
For a dear one say "I love you",
today and every day.


Author Notes
