Forgiveness does not ever say, What you did, is now OK. But forgiving you, releases me, I now regain a heart that’s free. I hold no grudge, I have no hate. The harm you did, will abate. My mind and heart, are now clear, To recover what you took, that was so dear. Forgiveness wasn’t instant, it took me a while. But now I forgive you, I can once again smile. My wish for you, is for a contrite heart, Where compassion and love can play a part. You didn’t ask my forgiveness, I know that’s true, But now I willingly to give it to you. It frees me from hurt, and a pain within. From the harm you caused, my healing can begin. Any future devilment you try to bestow, Will just make me stronger, this I know. It’s a contented life, I am going to live, Because you see,………. I forgive.
