โฃ

In fact,โฃ

At times,โฃ

Iโ€™ve judged youโฃ

โฃ

Far too harshlyโฃ

As vain, superficial, lame, high maintenance,โฃ

For ๐ข๐ง๐ฌ๐ž๐œ๐ฎ๐ซ๐ž people,โฃ

Who dare not leave their houses without you.โฃ

โฃ

I could never understand why,โฃ

anyone would want to dedicate an hour or more of their time,โฃ

โฃ

Putting you onโฃ

Caking you on,โฃ

Baking you on,โฃ

โฃ

And yet,โฃ

Here I am,โฃ

Doing the very same thing,โฃ

โฃ

I vowed to always abhor,โฃ

never to enjoy,โฃ

Never to savour,โฃ

โฃ

Doing the exact same thing!โฃ

โฃ

Could it be,โฃ

โฃ

That youโ€™re a companionโฃ

I can always count on,โฃ

To be there for me,โฃ

โฃ

To lift me up,โฃ

To cheer me up,โฃ

To brighten my day?โฃ

โฃ

I love you,โฃ

Iโ€™m so sorry,โฃ

for always judging you,โฃ

Please forgive me,โฃ

โฃ

Thank you.โฃ
