Speaking Terms

I apologize if my actions yesterday,
Seemed a bit petty.
I have been stressed lately.
And took that out on you.
I'm sorry.
I hope we will still be on speaking terms.

'No problem.
None at all.
You have proven...
To have more experience,
In that area than I do.
And when I witnessed that...
I learned to leave you alone.
I have forgiven AND forgotten.
And I did that within seconds.

We can be on speaking terms.
I can do the 'hi' and you can do the 'bye'.
And on our good days...
We can switch that around!
How's that?
You want to practice it now? '
