About the Poem

People don't always feel the same way about us, as we feel about them. It's not a crime, only human nature. We all know this of course, but we also know the hurt that comes when the feelings aren't shared ones. I do believe that forgiveness does help bring peace.

Let's Make A Deal

You forgive me for liking you too much,
And I'll forgive you for not liking me enough.

You forgive me for missing you so,
And I'll forgive you for being so cold.

You forgive me for the loud racing of my heart,
And I'll forgive you for not hearing it.

You forgive me for playing your games,
And I'll forgive you for toying with my emotions.

You forgive me for finding you so attractive,
And I'll forgive you for not noticing.

You forgive me for raising you up so high,
And I'll forgive you for bringing me down so low.

You forgive me for wanting to be with you,
And I'll forgive you for avoiding me.

You forgive me for being so pathetic,
And I'll forgive you for taking advantage of it.

You forgive me for not being able to let go,
And I'll forgive you for never having latched on.

You forgive me for having hopes and dreams,
And I'll forgive you for crushing them.

Forgiveness brings inner peace.
Do we have a deal?

This poem was beatiful. I am sorry to admit that I was the one that needed to be forgived. The one that hurt him so many times. The one that ignored his love and his kindness. But he never gave up on me. After 15 years 2 marriages (his & mine) 2 children and a lifetime of lost memorie's he has learned to forgive me and I have learned to open up to his love. Being loved unconditionally is the most beatiful love of all. I thank-you for finding the words that describe how I felt all these years. I'm sory for hurting you my love. please forgive me?
Thank you ~ you've captured my thoughts precisely!

This poem really touched my heart because it makes me think of some of the things that i have gone through when it comes to loving someone. I recently realized that people say what they do not feel sometimes. Learning that the hard way really sux. Well ur a great poet, keep up the good work and keep writing from ur heart. Sabra
OH my gosh. This is amazing. Someone once told me the reason poetry is so great is because when you read something that is happening to you, you know someone else has gone through it, and they lived. This poem is just. . . amazing.
