Forgiveness is the heart
opening and welcoming,
saying you are not apart from me
but cradled in my arms.
Forgiveness is the eyes that see
with great compassion
the weary struggle to hold it all together,
to be a certain someone
that the world will not discard.
Forgiveness is the voice of love
that like a river
flows into every nook and cranny
where darkness still prevails.
Your heart can break
but it is never broken,
it can rage and despair
and twist and turn
in all the struggle to be free,
but it is never constrained.
You are free already,
and forgiveness is the hand of love
guiding the lost and lonely parts within
to come in from the cold,
to come home into the heart of being.
This is beautiful and helpful, it a bit like a blessing … May you forgive, may you come in from the cold. Tells me very clearly how forgiveness helps me and also helps me to embrace the humaness of the ‘other’.
I love the way Marian’s words remind us of the vastness of the heart.The beauty and force of Marian’s poems always strike a deep chord within me.
A lovely way to start the day. Marie ♡♡
