Benediction - Poem by Mary C. Thomas

I give you blank forgiveness
For words you left unsaid
When comfort's hand was needed
You gave your shoulder for my head.

You gave me back life's sparkle
When all around was dross,
You picked me up to live again
And soothed away my loss.

I give you bland forgiveness
For all the tears I've shed
My soul you gave me back again
When all but hope was dead.

Once more I've got the courage
To face a brand new day
And help you back from sorrow
To laugh, and sing and play.

And all this blank forgiveness
Is shared by you and I,
To walk into tomorrow
And kiss the past Goodbye.
