Forgiveness- A poem
First time in years am feeling
So relaxed and relieved.
I am liberated from your shackles,
Your memories have finally lost their feel.
The tears have dried,
The pain has faded away.
Now, it feels so good to be whole again;
It feels so right to enjoy the rain.
By letting go of pain,anger,vengeance
And feelings of despair-I have learnt to breathe in fresh air.
By letting go of hatred, jealousy & resentment
I have found my strength;I've found a way for my heart to mend.
At first it was so hard to move on
but now it feels like a new life has been waiting for me.
At first it felt impossible to let go,
But now it feels like a new kind of warmth is spreading over me.
It was wrong to hurt cheat & lie to me.
But I guess it wasn't done intentionally.
It was wrong to leave
When You sweared You would never leave me
But, I am sure you would've stayed if it was written in my destiny.
There are no more feelings of hatred,
Enemity or regrets left anymore
'I FORGIVE YOU' for having walked out on me,
For having walked out of that door.
