I Forgive You


Two steps forward,one step back
Sometimes no steps forward, all steps back

I forgive you

I say the words over and over
Hoping, praying, believing
They will someday reach my heart
Someday be true

I forgive you

The wounds are deep and sometimes I am angry
But I still love you and that's the hardest part

I forgive you

I don't know if we will ever be "we" again
But I am praying for reconciliation
Praying for you, praying for me
Praying for us

I forgive you

Slowly I am healing
Slowly I am making peace
But it isn't once for all
It's the everyday choice
To let it go, to forgive

I forgive you

Today I choose forgiveness
Maybe I haven't forgiven you yet
But I am forgiving you
And I will keep on doing it
Until there is no need to tell you
Because you will already know

I forgive you
