Forgive You

I would forgive you

Even if it took you 25 years to call

25 years to turn up at my front door

I would still hold you with the same love

The same fire that burned between us

half a century ago

No amount of time and water

could stop me from burning

Raging flames still scream your name

I would forgive you for leaving

Emptiness remains in my chest

I’ve been praying for my heart to return home

Loving you in your absence has been a burden

I no longer wish to maintain without you

Love Notes, Fall 2018
