To Forgive is to Remember

 

To Forgive is to Remember


To forgive is not to forget,

To forgive is really to remember.

That nobody is perfect.

That each of us stumbles.

When we want so much to stay upright.

That each of us says things we wish we had never said.

That we can all forget that love

is more important than being right.

To forgive is really to remember,

that we are so much more than our mistakes.

That we are often more kind and caring

and that accepting another’s flaws can help us accept our own.

To forgive is to remember,

that the odds are pretty good

that we might soon need to be forgiven ourselves.

That life sometimes gives us more than we can handle gracefully.

To forgive is to remember,

that we have room in our hearts to begin again and again,

and again.
