the measure by which you forgive

is how well you will live with yourself

without them her

or anyone

lord please forgive me my many sins

of pride and ego

and help me let go of the bitterness

of yesterday

and live in today

to smile and all the while

you should know

i do love you so

and let something positive grow

and not to worry about things we cannot contro;

seventy seven times and more

i am sorry

i do too
