    I was posed a question by a friend it went like this, If you had just one last thing to say to anyone in the world that effect you in any way shape or form what would you say and who would it be? Well that person was the woman I should have married last year but due to some things that happened on both parts we desided that it was for the better that we can't be together and should not even be friends. Anyways, this is what I would say to her!!!!!


    Forgiveness

    I forgive you for everything
    That you have done to me
    For every time you broke my heart
    For all your little indiscretions
    I forgive you for
    Hurting me in the depth of my soul

    It doesn’t matter
    What you have done
    Or even what I have done
    All that matters is that
    We put the past behind us
    And live for tomorrow
    Cause I know everything
    That happened
    Was out of anger

    See we let our emotions
    Control us
    And for every time you told me
    You hated me
    Deep down inside I know
    That it was just words
    See there is a thin line
    Between love and hate
    And sometimes
    We just hate to love

    I don’t know if its fear
    Or just the unknown
    But sometimes
    You have to let all that go
    So here I am
    Standing in front of you
    Letting you know
    That I forgive you

    See true love
    Was never meant
    To really hurt
    And I realize that

    So here we are
    Us 2 playing a game
    Of who can hate whom
    The most
    Well I am sorry
    I am tired of play
    So I have to be real
    And just tell you
    The truth

    I don’t hate you
    In fact I love you
    I loved you from the beginning
    I know it’s hard to believe
    But it is what it is
    And I can’t change that

    God put you into my path
    for a reason
    I didn’t know what it was
    Until this moment
    But you have been a blessing
    In so many different ways
    That I can’t help
    But to tell you
    I appreciate you

    I just hope that one day
    You can say the same
    And just tell me
    You forgive me
    But until that day
    I can say
    That no matter what
    I will always
    Be there for you

    So please accept it
    When I tell you
    I forgive you

    This was a great poem.
    To truly forgive is something so hard to do.
    Letting the past be the past is another hard task.
    How can one heal from the past when the past is still in the present?
    Great piece.

    Hard to pick one verse that was my favorite but these 4 lines really struck me:
    See there is a thin line
    Between love and hate
    And sometimes
    We just hate to love

    When you run into someone who feels this way, the other party doesn't have a chance. What can you do when the other person feels love, but is afraid of it? Anyway, this was so was so wonderfully expressed poet!
