I forgive you and I still love you...


I forgive you,
for breaking my heart;
I forgive you,
for breaking us apart.

I still love you,
but not the way you want;
I still love you,
but I'm not yours to taunt.

I forgive you,
for snuffing out my life;
I forgive you,
for all the ills and strife.

I still love you,
but what now does it matter?
I still love you,
though my soul is shattered.

I forgive you,
for all the pain I've suffered;
I forgive you,
though none of it was buffered.

I still love you,
just not the way you planned;
I still love you,
but I do not want your hand.

I forgive and I still love you,
but the bond was never strong;
I forgive you and I love you,
but the words were always wrong

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
