The Forgiving Heart
I heard a voice from around the corner,
The more I turned it seemed further,
I kept walking with my head to the ground,
Until I heard a distinctive sound,
And in the wind I heard a voice say…
"Pick your head up"
I turned around almost in denial.
Until I heard the voice say "pick your head up" Child.
I continued to walk away, but in the wind I heard a voice say…
It's me your Papa,
Coming back from the dead to apologize,
For letting others believe my lies,
When your cousin said that I was touching her,
She was telling the truth,
But yet they all failed to believe her and it worked in my favor,
Tell her I said to walk with her head high,
Don't let this world fold in because of my lie,
I came back to make things right,
Because the man upstairs won't let me rest,
Until I had my time to confess.
I need u now more than ever, to tell your cousin that I love her.
So my dear child keep your head up high,
And tell everyone that I said "Hi."
I stood there standing with great emotion,
Confused a little bit,
But understood his devotion.
So my dear cousin if you can see this now,
Just know that I know the truth,
And if you read this, that it's absolute!
That I love u and I always did believe you.
But was too afraid of what it would do.
You’re the stronger one,
Stronger than me.
It's sad… all the shit that we've had to see.
I love you!
