You Should Not Be SorryA Poem by Ejdrup
You Should Not Be Sorry
“I am sorry,” you said to me,
Sad smile trying happy to be.
I was too young to know what you meant,
But now I know it was a statement you sent.
You were there from the moment I was born,
And you were there, even when you were gone.
Following every step I could take,
Ignoring the steps I could never make.
You saw the light when I saw dark,
Taught me things, no one ever about would talk.
Took me places I will never forget,
I deeply hoped, you either would regret.
I want to be like you, I always thought,
Though, now I know how hard you fought.
For me, for you, for the family,
You were the centre of our liberty.
But the day came, when I learned the meaning of cancer,
It is like this big, bulletproof panzer.
You were sorry; you could not see me grow older,
And slowly but sure, you grew colder and colder.
I wonder if I am what you would like to see,
Am I what you wanted me to be?
I ask to late, for an answer to get,
Did I let you down? Will you me forget?
So now I grew tall,
And I want you to not worry,
And for every mistake I made:
“I am sorry.”
