I've paid for those beatings I gave you
People reap what they sew for the things they do.
I've reaped what I sewed for what I did to you.
Every time I hit you, it brought you to tears.
I've paid for those beatings I gave you over the years.
When I had a stroke a few months ago, it paralyzed me for life.
I've been a horrible husband and I don't deserve to have you for a wife.
You are amazing because you've decided to stay and take care of me.
You've made your decision but most people do not agree.
I feel remorse because of what I've done before.
I don't deserve your kindness, you should walk out the door.
While I was an evil monster, you still stuck to your vows.
I'm going to do my damnedest to make it up to you somehow.

Well jeesh I'm glad to hear that it isn't true! Sad to say though, most never come the realization that this presented. I know of too many who feel what they have done was/is justified and deserving. If they could only be brought to their knees, broken mentally and physically the same way, it wouldn't be enough still. Thank God for the human spirit, that somehow keeps many on the other side of this able to cope and continue, and walk away to start over again. I always say people can change, but this is ine harsh cycle. I think the subject matter of this is very deep, but you brought  some ray of hope to it. Barbie
