Forgiveness - Poem by Dipankar Sadhukhan

I forgave you so many years ago.
I forgot your offence that day
When you made my colourful dreams pale
By crushing my soft mind
And breaking my tender heart.

But can you forget me for a single moment?
Once you made me dream
To build a colourful world with you.
Don't the happy moments knock at the door
Of your mind even for a second?

I forgave you my dear
When the colourful dreams fell
From the branches of my mind and heart.
But have you forgotten me even for a moment?
Are you truly happy today my dear?

    You have sounded a deep well here, good poet. Forgiveness....what really is it? Is it really forgetting? I do not think so. If someone stabs me, I may forgive him, but every time I see the scar, I will remember. You may break my heart, and I can forgive you, but every time my mind recalls your face, I will remember you, and forgive you again. Forgiveness is not an act, but a state of being. To illustrate a little more humorously, how can you write a poem announcing that you have forgotten the things that you detail to us what your lover did to you.
    :) Yes, much to meditate upon, and your well-written piece brings these considerations into the light.

    I love the image of your colorful dreams turning pale.

    Again, well-written, good poet. Thank you.
