I Will Forgive You (But I Won'T Forget) Poem by Kemi Kemms

I Will Forgive You (But I Won'T Forget)

Rating: 4.5


You knew my name and I
Told you how my friends call me
How you can call me too

I respected you honored your words
And even the worst of you
Supporting you, avoiding lies

I will forgive you
I will forgive you
You are forgiven
But I will not forget

We were like soulmates
Loved similar things connecting us
The same paths lead us through life

Once everything ends
So it seemes we came to an end
This is where our friendship ends

I will forgive you
I will forgive you
You are forgiven
But I will not forget

If you can't keep promises
You better don't give them
The least harm you do the best

Would you do it differently?
Would you erase your mistakes?
Would you sacrifice anything for me?
Would you backstab me all over again?

I will forgive you
I will forgive you
You are forgiven
But I will not forget

It's the right to do, forgiving, especially our loved ones for our own peace of mind. Forgiveness is a more fulfilling emotion than grudge and vengeance. It an attribute of the strong and not the weak. A lovely piece of poetry, well articulated and nicely penned. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON.
