18 I’m Sorry Poems for Your Wife: a Proven Technique to Be Forgiven

apology poems for your wife

Looking for special way to aks for forgiveness from your wife? Maybe this can help you.
Once I sent a sorry poem to my wife.

Of course, I’m not a poet.

I made a slideshow using only our photos, the poem and her favorite song. Guys, I really didn’t expect it would end so well! She called me immediately after receiving it and we had a great time together.

By the way, the poem I sent to her is among others in this article. So, if you want to know which one I chose, write in the comments and make your guess.


by Edward Iacona

The phrase “I’m Sorry” you may agree

Has turned into a social amenity

We say “I’m Sorry” more than Brenda Lee

Which was a hit song for her back in 1960.

You may not want to acknowledge the damage you’ve done

The pain that you’ve brought to spouse, daughter or son.

But if you’ve done wrong you must see the light

To take a pro-active step to returning things right

There will remain feelings that you can’t erase

Lost time and memories that you can’t replace

Because of your actions now nothings the same

Take a look in your mirror and know that there’s blame.

Maybe those words are one’s you won’t do.

They may not exist in your new age point of view.

Or, don’t want to hear the anger, it might make you blue

It’s easier to leave your loved ones hurt and askew.

Just saying I’m sorry is not all it takes

No magical words to make gone the mistakes

Begin the road back with those words from your heart

They do not mark the end but maybe a start.

Your family’s your bond like no other glue.

A great family we had, can we renew?

Deep in your heart you know what to do.

If I can say “I’m sorry” then I think you can too.


by Unknown

Many tears you have shed

Till your eyes are all red

For all the hurtful words that I have said

When kinder words should have been uttered instead.

Now, I’m lying on my bed

Images of you in my head

Thinking of how many ways can sorry be said

Because if I know, I’ll say them all to you in a thread.

To Be One With Each Other

By George Eliot (1819-1880)

What greater thing is there for two human souls than to feel that they are joined together to strengthen each other in all labor, to minister to each other in all sorrow, to share with each other in all gladness, to be one with each other in the silent unspoken memories?

This is my favorite one. But it doesn’t mean that shorter is better. The main thing in writing or picking the right poem is the meaning that author gives between the lines.

My Beautiful Wife

By Vaughn Bekker

I love you babe with all my heart

Never from you do I want to part

If I had the power I would stop time

So that forever I could call you mine

Most precious moments we have shared

With you by my side I could never be scared

I`m sorry I have done things that have made you mad

But even more for those that have made you sad

You are so amazing my perfect little soul

You took my broken heart and made it whole

We`ve been together for ever so long

If I knew how I would write you a song

Thank you for the most amazing years

I`m sorry if ever I have brought you tears

My love for you could never be sold

I want to hold your hand, even when we`re old

I guess at the end what I am trying to do

Is say – my beautiful wife, I love you

The misdeed

by Sharon Hendricks

Those words should not have been spoken

The deed should not have been done.

But I realize that I was very wrong

and that I hurt your feelings badly.

So I ask you for your forgiveness

and hope that we are still friends.

Because inside my heart I’m empty

and feeling so sad I can’t stand it.

The harm is done and it’s time to ask for forgiveness. Try not to concentrate only on your feelings but think primarily of your wife’s emotions. Make her feel like she’s the only woman for you and then you’ll have good chances of success.

I’m sorry

by Deborah

Have you ever hurt the one love,

By the things you didn’t say,

Have you ever thought , how it might be,

Had you apologized, in some way,

Have you carried the guilt, of passing the blame, onto the one you love,

Knowing you’ve caused them sleepless nights,

by rivers of tears that flowed

has it brought you to a lonely place,

has it robbed of your love,

You may not know, how to say your sorry,

and for once you were wrong,

have you embraced, who you really are,

did you truly let it go,,

can you say your sorry a time or two, and let the healing grow.

Two wrongs, don’t make a right,

This much, i know is true,

But i’d like to start somewhere,

By apologizing to you

Though I Broke My Promise and Your Trust

by Dimitri Shostakovich. Sequenced by J. Marques

Though I broke my promise and your trust,

My love for you remains as strong as ever.

I know it must mean little to swear never

Again to break my word, and yet I must.

What else can I do? Your fury’s just,

But all my world will darken if you sever

My heart from yours. Please wait, and I’ll endeavor

To blow new life into this mound of dust.

All that you require of me I’ll do

And more, if what you ask leaves room for more.

Thus time will heal this wound and leave no scar.

Since I now know the pain of losing you,

I’ll be yours more than I could before,

And you will see what my true feelings are.

What really makes a man? A sense of sharp humor or maybe a fancy suit? No. The main feature is his ability to keep his word. A guy who once promised and didn’t make good is worth nothing as a man. So, guys let’s learn how to be as good as our words.

Forgive My Mistakes

by Anna Liz Williams

I know I’ve made mistakes

So why should I even try

For when you look at me

All you see is that I lie

I’m sorry for the things I said

For giving you false truth in your head

I know that I’ve caused pain

that I drive you insane

Though you may not see what’s inside of me

You should know it’s deader than the Dead Sea

You may think that I don’t care

For all I give is just a stare

But what you don’t know

Is that the love I have for you is what glows

So I promise to try hard and to be true to you

So that our happiness will not be through

All I ask is one thing to see

Can you find it in your heart to forgive me?

For there is one thing I know is true

I do Love You

Lock and Key

by Rachel Sherwood

I hardly know where to look

anymore. Places have a

putrid familiarity

like the smell of my own sheets

or the close air of the kitchen —

fishbones on the drain

left in the ghastly order

of temporal things.

I have been sitting in this bar

for years now

the beer is stale, the wine off-color

the music is always the same,

old, sad songs that get older

no better than endless conversation

night after forgotten night

when all I or you can recall

is the dark, the traffic lights,

the bartender’s comments

about drunk women

in public places.

I would like to go home

finally, down the long streets

north and south crossed with small gold leaves;

I forget just where the hell

anything is. Locked out.

Often, it seems that nothing can be brought back. The harm is done and it’s time to repair the balance in your relationship. But many of us usually get puzzled thinking how to fix past mistakes. I’ll tell you a secret: there is no way. All you can do is to avoid a recurrence of bad times. Try to do your best.

Forgive Me

by Derek P. Day

From time to time our relationship

Goes through troubled waters

And I say and do things that hurt you

Sometimes things don’t go the way

I expect them to

Anger and impatience get the best of me

Hurtful accusations are made

And unintentional things said

I am sorry I hurt you

Sometimes I get carried away

With my own cares and interests

And tend to ignore your needs

You are the most important person

In my world and life

I am sorry

For all these things and more

I am truly sorry

Please forgive me

Venus’ Boyfriend

by Rachel Sherwood 

She sat on his lap for hours

pressed his face to her

large pink breasts her hands

moved through his hair

like fond snakes

she gave him curls, cleft

hooves beneath the flesh

marvellous flesh, and smooth shoulders

she taught him

how to use his tongue

to shape a heart

from a piece of ice.

The Art of a Good Marriage

by Wilferd Arlan Peterson

Happiness in marriage is not something that just happens.

A good marriage must be created.

In marriage the little things are the big things.

It is never being too old to hold hands.

It is remembering to say “I love you” at least once a day.

It is never going to sleep angry.

It is at no time taking the other for granted;

the courtship should not end

with the honeymoon, it should continue through the years.

It is having a mutual sense of values and common objectives.

It is standing together facing the world.

It is forming a circle of love that gathers the whole family.

It is doing things for each other, not in the attitude of duty or sacrifice,

but in the spirit of joy. It is speaking words of appreciation

and demonstrating gratitude in thoughtful ways.

It is not looking for perfection in each other.

It is cultivating flexibility, patience,

understanding and a sense of humour.

It is having the capacity to forgive and forget.

It is giving each other an atmosphere in which each can grow old.

It is a common search for the good and the beautiful.

It is establishing a relationship in which the independence is equal,

dependence is mutual and the obligation is reciprocal.

It is not only marrying the right partner, it is being the right partner.

To build a strong relationship is a challenge for both of you. Whether it’s a boy and a girl, a man and a woman, a husband and a wife – they all have to use every effort in order to create a lasting relationship. It is no easy matter. It requires a great deal of time and discipline. The main point lies in dedication. No matter how much time you spend together if you do it without shared desire.

Vow Renewal Poem

by Unknown

How good it is to let our memory wander

And travel back across the fruitful years

To count how many miles we’ve walked together!

On pinnacle of dreams, through vales of tears,

Along the level ground of every day

We’ve made our way.

In sickness and in health, in joy and sadness,

Together, side by side, sunshine or shade,

We’ve worked toward common goals, found


In all the hours of which our years are made.

All things were possible because we shared,

Because we cared.

After many years, we still hold dearest

Of all life’s blessings anywhere on earth

The trust and honor that we give each other,

The love that gave our other blessings birth.

Praise be that I am yours by plan divine,

That you are mine!

To Say Sorry

by Unknown

I know I have done wrong lately

And have hurt you tremendously

All I can say is sorry

Although it seems inadequate, really.

But if you could just let me

To explain my side of the story

Of how painful it can be

To know I have hurt someone so greatly.

My thoughts of you are many

As I want to make it up to you quickly

I’m now hoping fervently

For you to give me this opportunity.

What did I ever do to deserve this?

The bitter truth is that we learn from mistakes. Without making them we wouldn’t become the people we are. If we only could make them without bringing hurt to the people we love.

I’m Sorry that I Disappointed You

by William Byrd. Performed by John Sankey

I’m sorry that I disappointed you

And did what I had promised I would not.

Mistakes can often teach someone a lot,

So please give me a chance before we’re through.

Of all the punishment for my disgrace,

Regret at losing you has hurt the most.

Recall, I beg of you, this tearful ghost,

Yearning to return to your good grace.


by Tina K

How do I tell you I’m sorry –

With a gesture, a look, a touch?

How is it I never realized

I hurt you so very much? 

I do not ask forgiveness,

A comfort I’ll never deserve.

I merely want to let you know,

But I cannot find the nerve. 

To finally confront you, face-to-face,

To look you in the eye,

To face your wrath, your apathy –

Too terrified to try.

You called me selfish, I turned away,

I festered and I fled;

Cutting and wounding and lashing out,

Just to see if you bled. 

Betraying and deceiving you,

I surely had no right

To snatch away such a precious gem;

A dark thief in the night. 

Four years and forever passed

To bring us to this day,

When I present these simple words

I never thought to say. 

The time has come, it’s long past due,

To put aside my fear;

Would this confession torture you,

Or have you longed to hear? 

To hear those two forbidden words,

To vanquish all the pain,

To understand my dearest wish:

To know you once again. 

The years aged me remarkably,

Though they have not made me wise;

I do know I erred irrevocably –

For that I apologize.

The older we get the wiser we become. It’s true. Nobody’s perfect. Whether you’re young or old, making mistakes will be always an unavoidable part of your life.


by Derek P. Day

Your feelings got hurt

For something I said

Something I did

For something, maybe

That I didn’t do

Sometimes I act in ways

That I regret

But it’s too late

The damage is done

Your pain

Causes me pain too

So now, all I can say

Is that I’m sorry

Please forgive me

I’m sorry

I Am Sorry

by Leon Weate

Every time I see the pain in your eyes

A little part of my heart dies

No matter how hard and how often you try

All I seem to do is make you cry. 

You risk so much and take such chance

To share your heart and your romance

You share your hopes and dreams and fears

And let me in to all that’s dear 

All I seem to do is be mean and cold

To fail to cherish, fail to hold

I seem to fail to put you first

You act your best, I am my worst 

My mouth contradicts my heart

My actions and thoughts so far apart

I love you with every part of me

Yet act so cruel and thoughtlessly 

I dream of you all night and day

And hang on every word you say

Yet all you see is selfishness and arrogance

Casual disdain and ignorance 

Assumption and judgment and every thing’s a test

No matter what you do you’re always second best

No matter how hard you try it’s never enough

I never hear your protestations of love 

I say I love you and cherish all of our dreams

Yet act as if I can’t hear your screams

Of need and want and stability and trust

My plans never materialize, my promises rust 

I scream at myself at how stupid I am

For risking your love, for risking your hand

And I pray every day that you never see

That I need you more than you need me 

I bare my heart and my soul to you

To say sorry for what I did and for what I do

I have no excuses and hide no more

All I can offer is my love for evermore.

Too Late To Right My Wrong

by Lamar Ingraham

It would take a miracle to get you now,

After I was too busy chasing every skirt,

Instead of realizing that I’d lose you somehow

To some other man who really values your worth.

Beautiful as you are since I first saw you,

I foolishly took my eyes off such prestige;

You are quite the queen of dreams, a blessing too,

And after all the women, my heart is under siege.

I feel like the greatest piece of me,

Now gone, so long long gone;

When I know that I’d messed up

And it is too too late right my wrong.

Such a strong woman from start to end,

Qualities of a bride, wife, and a helpmate,

But my youth would only let me descend

As I linger skin of teeth now ready to appreciate.

Dellusions of you always being there

Are what made me believe that I could do me;

Yet here I am crying sleeplessly to myself

Alone without you, baby, ever to please.

I feel like the greatest piece of me,

Now gone, so long long gone;

When I know that I’d messed up

And it is too too late right my wrong

My philosophy is simple: if she has forgiven me, than the poem was just the thing.

So, guys, I wish you to choose a sorry poem that fits you the best and pleases your wife as well.
