It’s over screamed for no one to hear
Goodbye, see you around, hate filled ends
Nothing stirs, silence, acceptance -yes

I fell asleep, what did you tell me
Dreamt of your touch, kissing me softly
Were you crying, just tired- come here

Hair through fingertips, nose at my ear
Why me, you, and now us, here, a pair
yours forever without banded ring

Love not easy, love not always kind
Hear me to know me; then still love me
You stir me in ways yet profound


In thinking of New Year’s resolutions and how each year is a chance that hope provides to be better and to do better, my first thought was forgiveness. If I decide to be resolute in a certain effort for the new year, then wouldn’t it benefit the effort if first one forgave all the past lapses in efforts prior to moving forward.

Initially, in my head, I thought of the awe of one forgiving another and how difficult it can be. The family who loses a child due to any number of thoughtless or unintended reasons would seem to be the most awe inspiring. But what about the smaller things that hinder our relationships with self and with others? That is what I personally plan to work on this year. Happy New Year!

Wounds not intended
Hurts causing shame
Large indiscretions
Mistakes to be tamed

Request or acceptance
Eraser of debts
Cures all resentment
Peace you will get

Promises broken
Injuries laid bare
Hurt paths forgotten
Injustices made fair

Hearts joined together
Three simple words
Say them or give them
Love’s great reward
