So much, I can forgive you for
But never your anger can be
Your loneliness, and its cries
Grow tears inside of me
Friends forever, we shall be
To your fear of darkness, amorphous anxieties
Heaps of reassuring hugs I give
Hoping to set you free
So long as you repent
I can always forgive
Your forgetfulness, poor memory
And so long as you love me with all your heart
Your clumsy way of showing love
Sets off a smile, healing warmth filling me
But your anger, sharp as a deadly knife
Cuts me deep inside
This I can never forgive
It sparks the same in me
No forgiveness there can be

Forgiving is the easy part…it’s the forgetting that is difficult.
Thanks Dan. Cause it sparks anger in us and that is unfortunate
Anger’s a hard one to forgive…
