Forever to Forgive
Looking up the sky sometimes dark, sometimes clear,
Like my heart for you is always there and screaming your name,
Making it all content to not call the words spell,
Time will tell and lead us to the destination designed,
Where we both will reside forever without any resignation.
I forgive you my love for not being there,
For not realizing the depth of my emotions,
Not being capable of holding on to the time,
Still, I stare at the scars growing old,
But nothing yet for me to glide the most,
I'll take up your name once more from beneath the earth,
I'll plant you again somewhere in the stars,
you buried yourself with my love,
But now I unearth you to unburden my heart,
The grief you caused and nursed.
You broke and tore me to bits,
I swore never to go down on my knees,
I rented my clothes and waxed my bones,
But I broke my vow and went down,
I asked for the forgiveness of your sins.
You are gone now but not all from me,
I get the feel of you in everything I see,
Not reaching you is like pouring my elixir in a basket,
When I am gonna reach you?
Oh, I wish you could find me as I found you.
They say to err is human and to forgive, divine,
With divine sincerity do I forgive you,
The scar you left heals better with you,
I have no powers to say your sins are forgiven,
But for all you did, I forgive you.
