Forgiveness
Ashley Burdett

I saw you.
Yes, I did,
I saw you,
Laid heavy with burden,
But still I did not stop
To help you carry it.

I saw you,
Yes, I did.
I saw you
But you did not see me,
For it was too late
I had already kicked dirt into your eyes.

I saw you.
Yes, I did.
But you did not see me,
Yet you felt me,
I was there,
In the sweet, warm spit,
I threw across your face.

I saw you.
Yes, I did.
But you were blinded by my hatred.
Still you cannot see me
For the veil of darkness
Has been drawn across your eyes.

I beg you.
Yes, I do.
To stop attempting to see with your eyes,
And learn to see with your heart.
When you have learned,
Please come and find me.

When you have learned,
I will see you
And say the words
I wanted to say that day
I broke your spirit and cursed your name.

Please forgive me.
