Forgive Me

Forgive me if I’ve forgotten what we argued for

We washed up here without our fear left it on the shore

It’s in each other’s arms we’re guilty wanting more

Like an old photograph you hold in your hands

Timeless till the waves melt what seemed like solid sand

Let me wake from just one more dream
Where the sun is rising and the light touches everything
An unending ending is it so much to ask
When all our time descending falls through an hour-glass

If I am no more than a blink of an eye let me fall a million ways let me feel before I die

All those friends who’ve come and gone loved ones whose memories may persist

Aren’t we all just the same leaving folded at the wrists

So please

Forgive what I am forgive what I am not forgive that I’m forgetting what should not have been forgot

Let me wake from just one more dream
Where the sun is rising and the light touches everything
An unending ending is it so much to ask
When all our time descending falls through an hour-glass

  1. Forgive me if I still your words
    I felt in tune with this warm song
    These waves in shape of lines
    Took me to the beach
    Where we last spoke.
    Back then there were no words
    just a loud kiss;
    If I remember that
    I say, there’s nothing
    To forgive.

    Thanks for the like to my really short story. Thanks for the inspiration! Really Nice & Beautiful Poem!!!

  2. We can only be our best selves. It’s up to others to forgive both what we are and what we are not. And each ending is a new beginning. i like these thoughts and images, and the way you express them.

  3. This is beautiful. You managed to capture so much emotion and express it truly beautifully.

    “An unending ending is it so much to ask
    When all our time descending falls through an hour-glass”

    In my opinion, these two lines, well the whole poem actually, really provoke deep thought about the way one lives their life, and I absolutely love that.

    Cheers.

      1. No thank you! For sharing your writing and for the good wishes!
        I wish I could write as well as you, but then I probably wouldn’t study at all…
        I look forward to reading more of your work once I am finished with exams.
