To forgive is to forget… literally!


Image by Pardesi*

I have seen your face,

a really pleasant one.

Still my reluctance.

Have you done something wrong?


I have heard you laugh,

and it touched my senses.

Yet again my doubt,

to feel sudden coldness.


Who are you my friend?

Have I met you before?

You offered me aid,

then you let me fall hard.


But that was a blur,

I can never recall.

Walk for the future,

Come join me, take my hand.


Never mind the past,

yesterday is long gone.

Today is a good start,

to know a friend once more.
