Forgiveness

Forgiving you,
Forgiving me,
Forgiving what has happened,
What has gone on,
What expired,
Through the many years,
We both caused each other pain,
We both caused each other rain,
But now things have truly changed,
And although it has been hard,
And although there were times I didn’t know,
If there was truly a way to forgive,
Forgive the pain,
Forgive the rain,
Forgive the hurt,
Forgive all the times I cried,
Cried since that moment,
Cried since that time,
Knowing that there was hurt on both sides,
Knowing that I wasn’t totally blameless,
Through everything,
Forgiving you,
Forgiving me,
Walking through that path,
Through God’s grace,
Praying along the way,
Knowing that this is the first step,
That it’s in God’s hands now,

To find that forgiveness,
The forgiveness we both need,
Forgiving you,
Forgiving me,
Finding that way,
Finding the time,
Knowing the truth,
That this is the true path,
As long as I believe,
As long as I ask Him,

Every single moment,
You can look and see my brown eyes,
You can spend a moment with me,
But do you really see?
Can you really believe?
Do you see my story?
Words can really only express so much,
Words on this page,
Or another,
You can see one facet,
You can see one part,
But do you really see?
Do you really know?
How can I truly introduce me?
How can I tell you from mere words,
Who I am?
You can read about me,
You can read these words,
You can read the various stories,
But what does one really say?
How does it really truly start?
We read things all the time,
We look at various words on the page,
But do we really know?
Do we really see?
How can we see beyond,
That introduction of them,
Do we give that chance?
Do we find a way?
Do we see through,
