The Blame

after all this time has passed
'sorry' would be so empty
meaningless to say
not the girl you knew back then.
resentment has made me tired.
anger has brought me down.
don't ask me to apologize
for who i used to be.
does every color i need
fall black and white at your feet
our mistaken story is done.
we have our girls, you have a son.
both of us are where we should be.
life's too short for keeping score.
hate me if it will help you
give them what they deserve
can't hold the blame for you
