I called you today to say I’ll be late,

I got held at work with the schedule you hate,

I know these new hours have not been so easy,

I’ve been grinding so hard I mostly stay sleepy,

It’s not easy for you to wait all alone,

For me to show up back at the home,

You wait and you wait hoping I come,

And then when I get there I’m silent and numb,

Stress has me aching and sleep has me drained,

You didn’t ask for this but you still remained,

I thought I was doing the best for our team,

I’m sorry that this didn’t follow your dreams,

So ill hang up the phone I know you’re not there,

I’m sorry you waited for me to be there.
