Please, Forgive Me! - Poem by George Aul

You have a schedule,
we have our problems,
you don't want to hear about it,
you only care about loving us,
you only want to laugh, not cry;
you've been bargained for
like a second-hand item,
but you are a first-class person.
I watched you suffer
this terrible fate,
you didn't have anything to do with it;
it will never be your fault,
I promise you that.
You are a blessing from above,
we have darkened that blessing
with our stupidity and stubborness;
all you want is peace and
wholeness once again,
all we want is to be separate,
but we both want to share your life.
Forgive us!
Forgive me!
I've fractured your life,
I've divided your time,
but most of all,
forgive me for not being there
when you need me the most;
my soul always cries for you,
you are my child,
the one pure gift from above.
Please forgive me, my child.
