My faults are many, my problems few

Perhaps too many I tell, but just not you

Through rifts and valleys I suppose you were there

Mostly too self absorbed was I, neglecting to care

I see that now, I will see it still

In years to come when I am old and ill

Troubled am I with a past I cant change

Weary am I with thoughts of mumbling rage

Sorry to say I have let so much slip by

No longer will I live by the words of a lie

Regrettably so, she lay hurt in my wake

Regrettably so, I was the only mistake

She lives in my mind she swims in my dreams

Nobodies perfect but she mended my seams

◄ Only For You

I'm a fan of verse that tells a story and scans
well in the main. Good to see this post.
Two points: I would have been tempted to use
""Too self-absorbed, I neglected to care" instead
of "Mostly self-absorbed (etc.,) - to keep the rhyming rhythm going...and sought to use "derange"
instead of "mumbling rage" to the same end.
