Spring marks no return
to life from sleep, no rebirth
of something long dead...

but here rises a new hope
from the ashes of the world.

they held you captive mistakes you made long ago cut the ties that bind forgive yourself and move on God forgave you long ago

Sweet Sanctuary

Come asylum's breath,
gossamer wings touch mine brow ~
Grant me refuge please;
then may my soul find comfort.
In your peace, my heart shall rest...

My Love Song In Tankas

just in few moments as the dusk obscures the sky lids cover my eyes my mind begins to reckon the things I’ve done the whole day a flurry it was missing the sun in your eyes my heart in regrets didn’t sing you song last night or gave you right back sweet hugs now I sing my song but ice cream melts on its cone what else will I do to win back the love from you and make me smile and heart grows plead down so deeply asking you not to leave me I am so sorry this is the best melody be sung in my poetry I hope you can hear song being played in G-Clef lonely but lovely Tanka Song with love I sing hoping to ease all our pains

Forgiveness What is forgiveness… A state of mind that’s open, A heart that still cares, The wish to set back the clock And start all over again. Hope to heal the pain With salve of understanding… Tears to wash away Bitterness inside the heart Made sweet for a fresh new start Contest: Forgiveness Sponsor: Rob Carmack

Forgive and Forget, a Foolish Fallacy

The grace to forgive
Does not mean it’s forgotten
The heart remembers
Scar tissue ever present
Yet it pumps out crimson love

recovery starts small

Tall pines, burnt forest
Devastation of soot and grief
Blackened bark, smokes
Winds whisper as time passes
Among the decay, seedlings

can't fogive

i do not want to,
nor, never will fogive him,
for he has hurt me
and i just can't forgive him,
for what he has done to me

Forgive Me

There is no denying
You are my one and only love
Please come back to me
Happiness can still be ours
I will not let my jealousy
Destroy what we have together
Please say you will forgive me

the unanswered

The Unanswered

A mass murderer
Should there be room for pity
A crime so awful 
Yet he was born an infant
Innocent eyes seeing the world 

Forgive our hatred 
If we have not the power
To forgive his sins 
Forever we see him as a ghost
An echo of forbidden thoughts

From all minarets
The cry of one rightful god
 A dominant faith
 Too much for a godless land
Can we defy its command?

Forgiveness Finds Peace

Forgiveness Finds Peace

I am wondering.
Why is peace so hard to find?
We have all felt wrath.
And we know forgiveness binds.
Love.  Why do we cling to hate.
