Forgiving Without Forgetting - Poem by Camacy Melville
How can you say 'forgive and forget'?
When what happend will never pass away?
How can I try to forgive without really knowing what it is that happened?
How can I forget when what happened is not forgetable
I can't forgive and I really can't forget
So what do I do?
What can I do?
What can you do?
You can let me know what it is....you can tell the Truth
you can stop hiding from me
you can start calling me
You can just be you and dont worry
Cause' as far as I know it's done aint no more to go through
No more pain
No more tears
No more nothing
If you dont talk; if we dont talk; then i wont know, and then I can't forgive
but for now, I can forgive but that comes with knowing the Truth
Forgiving without Forgetting that is what I entitle myself to do........
