Forgive The Little Things - Poem by Ben Paynter

forgive the little things
that hold no consequence
like the
cold feet
and raindrops
that tip toe
on wet pavement

forgive the rainbow
after the storm
for smiling too
brightly

forgive the glare
of a jealous man
without a heart
just like you forgave
god

forgive the little things
like the flowers
forgive the drought
and the clouds
and the romantic man

forgive the little things
the large things
the nothing things
the barely anythings

and I'll forgive your eyes
for stealing mine

    This is absolutely beautiful Ben, I adored the last two lines, they finished the poem so well. A delightful read, a real pleasure to find it. But then I always enjoy your writes they are so good.
