Forgive And Forget - Poem by gerry mark

It all began when i saw her standing all alone in the rainy weather
Face beaten up like she was in world war four
Her dress was torn and dragged like she was poor
My heart fell for her and it begun to let her in like an open door

'What is wrong with you my dear? '' i said
She replied '' My husband left me and he left me unfed
He took my children and is feeding them dry bread
He offered me to his friends and they all had me in bed
I was taken advantage of and he did not even care how much i bled
I called the police but they to had their chance with me and acted like they never cared
Tried talking to my neighbors; they told me i was not good in the head
I had no one to take me on until you came ahead

I was caught by surprise to hear what this lady has been through
And did not even think twice of taking her to live with me and my son to
I gave her shelter i gave her clothes i even gave her food
she stayed with my son and i for several years pending on me to apprehend the fool

Seven years later we were watching the daily news
We heard of a guy who was knocked down by a bull
It was sad to hear and see about that because it was so awful
But then the woman burst into tears because she heard the name mr Bagdull
It was the husband who used and abused her and did stuff which was uncool

I brought her to the hospital because she decided to see him
He did not even notice her until she sowed him a scar on her chin
The scar he made with a really huge pin
Now he burst into tears and begged and pleaded for she to come back to him
To my surprise she accepted him and turned back to me and said
''FORGIVE THEM FOR THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY DO
THANK GOD THAT I SPENT TIME TO RECOVER WITH YOU
BUT I CANT FORGET ALL THE GOOD TIMES I HAD WITH MR BAGDULL :) ''
