A little understanding
Did I pass you in the corridor yesterday?
Did I forget to smile?
Did I make you feel miserable
When I looked through your glance?

Did I delay replying to you
By e-mail, messaging or facebook alerts?
Did I seemingly ignore your cry for sympathy
When you posted that you lost someone dear?
Did I hurt you emotionally
When I didn’t return your call?
Did you feel like I slammed the door
When you left the last time you were here?
Forgive me, my friend
For I meant none of the above
I have been in pain myself
From losing a loved one
And suffering from a fall
From monumental changes that
Threatened to turn my world
Upside down and inside out
If I have wounded you
I am ready to take the blame
All I ask for is a little understanding
And for you, I will do the same
