"I always lied to you, telling you to forgive me. I always kept you far away, with my own hands… I didn’t want to involve you. But now I think that you would have been able to change our father, mother, the Uchiha… If I had faced you from the start, tried to see things from your point of view and talked with you about the truth… but I failed, and no matter what I say now, it still won’t reach you. That’s why I’m finally going to say what I really think. You don’t have to forgive me. No matter what you decide to do from now on, I will love you forever."
