No Room For Pride

I will do anything and everything

For one more chance

Now that I know what I’ve done

Now that I understand

I beg you

Please give me one more chance

I’ve had time to replay a lot of things in my head

I realize my anger is founded on my own bullshyt thoughts

It pains my heart thinking about it with a new understanding

I want us to be friends again

Talking about everything

Making big moves together

Together

Please

Let us be

Together

 

I’m sorry

That I never said thank you

For making it that I didn’t have to worry about all the noises that I hear during the night

Because I AM thankful

I’m sorry

That I never said thank you

For doing little things like going to the grocery store because I really didn’t want to go

Because I AM thankful

I’m sorry

That I never said thank you

For doing so well with my kids; everything from helping the oldest with her math homework that I’ve long forgotten to loving my youngest so hard that it sends you some place when her own actions bring her new troubles

Because I AM thankful

 

I TOTALLY feel as if I have NO RIGHT to ask for anything

But I can’t help it

I beg you

PLEASE

Give me one more chance

PLEASE

Give us one more chance

PLEASE

Let me show you how much I understand and how serious I am about changing

PLEASE

Give me another chance to treat you as the king that you are

PLEASE

Give me one more chance to make this house a home

PLEASE

Give me one more chance to pull our family together

PLEASE

Let me continue to wake up to you

Let me continue to sleep in the crook of your left arm

Let me continue to cook your dinner

Let me continue to trip over your shoes in the morning

PLEASE

Give me one more chance to show you that beautiful woman you first met is still here

 

I’ve pushed all pride aside to say

PLEASE

Don’t quit on us.
