I forgot

I forgot 

Those times I sat on my bed and cried, And sobbed my losses after all I tried

And you sat by my side and held me tight

You spoke comforting words to make things right.

When I think of those times of feeling blue... I remember, I forgot... to say, "Thank You."

Those times I got attitude, doing things on my own, Feeling overwhelmed, and my stress-level blown.

Shutting you out, to get things done, Feeling slow-motion, but wanting to run

And you'd ask to help, asking what to do

 I remember, I forgot... to say, "I need you."

Those times when we'd argue and have our doubts

We'd criticize, we'd yell

and speak of other whereabouts

And the clock would heal

and words would mend

And we'd straighten out the things we had bent

When you'd question me of my wants

I remember, I forgot... to say, "I want you."

Those times I'd sit and miss you all day, But when you got home, my mind was astray

And I'd walk right past you, not even aware That you felt neglected, like I didn't care,

Taking for granted what I thought you knew

I remember, I forgot... to say, "I love you."
