I was inspired to write this poem about forgiveness from a relationship standpoint because there are many times when a significant other will say that he/she forgives you but during a disagreement the past is thrown in your face.
If you are going to truly forgive someone for whatever it is that he/she did wrong and choose to stay with that person then stop bringing up the past because that will not be healthy for your present or future.
You don't have to totally forget but pray for the strength to forgive and move forward without regret or remorse especially when you have chosen to try to make the relationship work successfully.
You say that I'm forgiven,
And the mistakes are gone away,
But when you get upset,
Those things resurface and get thrown in my face,
We are trying to move forward,
And that works for a little while,
The moment you feel aggravated,
Then all the past hurts and issues are placed on our present pile,
I've forgiven you time and time again,
With you I just can't seem to win,
So if we are to truly leave the past in the past,
Then let's work to make this relationship last,
Let's fall on our knees and pray,
To make the present and future a brand new day,
We may never forget,
We must learn to forgive,
Just as we are given the golden opportunity,
For each and every day that we live.
