I will never forget your name or your face,
and I will never forget what you've done.
But I will take what you gave to embrace
like the light as gifted from stars and the sun.
I will accept the hurt that has been displaced
onto me; I will forgive the pain you've caused.
Know that my wrath lead to poor judgement,
and hot anger brought me payments of cost.
I paid my dues and I come to forgive;
accept my love and continue to righteously live
