Forgiveness

Often the hardest to forgive,

Is the closest one of all.

The one person of this world,

Where your standard is untoward.

Your gift to her is every sin.

A list of which held high!

Each unkind word, each fallen step,

Every failure she’s ‘self made’.

And God forbid, lest your forget.

Every night she cried.

If you tell her she’s not good enough,

Soon she will believe it true.

Her light will fade,

Her eyes will dull.

She will smile but only through,

Forgive her now,

Mistakes past due.

Your love for her be true,

Treat her like a special friend,

After all my love she’s you.
