tried and failed

I tried.
I tried my hardest.
Gave it my best effort.
And failed...
at being a good wife.
at being a good mom.
at being a good person.
Failed in countless other ways.
I have fallen so short that there are no words that can make up for the shortcomings.
I failed, and I am sorry.

I want to know if (I) can live with failure, yours and mine, and still stand on the edge of the lake and shout to the silver of the full moon, ‘Yes!’
