    The hurt is gone now
    the bitter anger too
    taken by the wish
    for healing
    to break thru

    I no longer
    want to hurt you
    or see you go
    thru hell
    cuz you are
    a part of me
    as my heart
    in truth will tell

    I guess you
    tried to tell me
    that I’m too hard
    to love
    I wish you could
    see inside me
    and see the
    gentle dove

    Gentleness
    you asked for
    but I held back
    afraid that you
    were lying and
    playing behind
    my back

    I acted so **** hard
    guess you couldn’t see
    the everything you meant
    in this world
    of you and me

    I can not sleep
    and the tears
    so often
    run
    that for days
    I haven’t seen
    the new day
    or the sun
    I wonder what is wrong
    that I could cry
    so much
    and fall down
    on my knees
    at the memory of
    your touch

    The touch you want
    to give
    to them, not me
    and the heart
    that I believed
    would share my destiny

    i know that everyone
    feels the heart ache
    but wisdom
    doesn’t make
    it any
    easier to take

    You used to love
    my words
    how they
    pour onto the page
    this is what I’d
    say to you if I had
    you face to face

    I forgive you
    Papi,
    I forgive you
    thru and thru
    cuz you are
    a part of me
    and that’s the simple
    truth.

    I gotta let it flow
    To the creator
    i will pray
    to part with
    the part of me
    that was night
    unto my day

    But if it's Divine will
    to have you
    as my mate
    than may we
    hasten to correct
    the ego and their
    mistakes

    If it is Divine will
    to return you home
    to me
    than pure in
    heart to Mami
    and united
    will we be

    Healing and forgiveness, such important, yet difficult steps to take to move on. Sometimes people try to tell us something, and we just don't see it until they aren't there to tell us about it any more. Heartfelt piece, I certainly felt your words.

    Hi phynxofkmt
    so true sis
    sometimes we have to take that
    time and take a deep breathe, and
    let the healing of the body and mind
    connects US back to our essence of
    who we are..very nice scribe
    Keep bringing it

    Peace~N~Love
