All my actions caused you great hurt and sorrow
They were surely what made you cry and bleed
Regardless of this pain, you always stuck by me
Offering support during the times of my greatest need
Since time travel is not a possibility
Allowing the bell to be unrung
Only the present can be changed, and
Step by step, that is what’s being done
This was a bad occasion when I made a slip
Heck, Rome wasn’t built in a day
Doesn’t mean I love and want you any less
Just I am human in every way
I have no intention of giving up
On this break with the past
It may get incredibly difficult
But, I do not desire to come in last

Sometimes you have to go through the 12 steps to lick alcoholic consumption. This writing is a good start. I write from experience I am a recovering alcoholic of 6 years.
