Reaching out

If I reached out to take your hand
  would you meet me in return
Or turn away in sorrow
  as if my touch had burned
I dont know how to reach you
  so many times ive tried
Only to fill with sorrow
  the many tears ive cried
In the past I took a selfish stand
  the path I took was wrong
Many roads I traveled
  tho I did not belong
I did not see you standing there
  reaching out to me
Waiting for an answer
  that would set you free
I did not see the pain and sorrow
  brought about by me
All im asking now
  is to find it in your heart
To forgvive me for the past
  and help me with a start
