Forgive Me - Reply


My heart is broken beyond all fix
You can attempt to make it alright
But give me time to pick the pieces
May be time will heal the wounds!

Don't ask me to pretend that
Things are fine, ‘cos it is not
It was you, who believed those lies
So if you cry your eyes out
I simply cant be the one to hold
And dry your tears, at least now.

Don't ask me to forget everything
I just can't, not just yet
I know that you are hurt as well
But, don't ask me to forgive you
Cos, you hurt me deep inside.
I poured out my soul, dry to you
My eyes - they bleed, and they cry for you
But now, only for a forgotten cause

Don't ask me to trust you now
I wont' be able to, evenif I try
What made me live in this pain
Was that single flame of love
I hid in my heart for you
A hope that you will know one day!

Don't ask me to hurry
This is going to take years
The pain you inflicted
May take a lifetime to heal
So don't even take a stand
to be bold and face the wrath
Nor make more excuses
You know you were wrong.

Don't tell me you've changed
I have to see it with my own eyes
But, don't ask me to hate you
My spirit won't allow me
I can offer you forgiveness
because I have to.

Don't ask me to embrace it
I'm trying to live with it
Don’t cry anymore on this
Just remember that I love you
And if our love is strong enough
We will get over this some day.

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
