    what you took from us could never be undone.
    we will never again see our loved one.
    _____ is gone, period, forever.
    i stand in this room and i face off with you
    and only God is holding my sanity together.

    i practiced long and hard for this day to come
    every day i thought of this while you were on the run
    i thought of them catching you and putting you away
    i thought of the death penalty... i longed for this day.

    i had so many hateful words all stored up in my head
    i wanted you to know because of you an angel is dead
    i wanted to curse you to hell and back again a few times
    but i'm standing here now, and i've changed my mind.

    you see, you made a mistake, as humans often do
    yours just happened to be more grievous than the average few.
    if you could take that moment back, if they set you free right now,
    you would change it all back, sin no more, no how.
    i don't think i have it in me any more to hate.
    you see, i talked to God, and He told me to Wait.
    so instead of beseeching the courts to throw away the key
    i'm going to do for you what i would want done for me.
    i'm going to put you in my prayers, because you are young still
    that you be kept safe in jail, be it God's will.
    i am giving you a gift that you ill deserve
    because _____'s memory had many and much worth.
    and although you caused the pain in which my family has to live
    i have no choice, other than to forgive.
    God Bless You, Marqus.
    I Cannot Hate You
    Even Though I Tried.
    peace--Ms.Dy.

    Speachless to your words...
    So sorry for your loss, so sorry for the pain you experience for never finding that familiar face in your life.
    So heartfelt.
    :heart:
    Peace...
