Sipped enough of poison…

Until it was all I knew…

Counted all my enemies and trusted allies were so very few…

But I wrote myself in stories where I needed a hero just like you…

The longer I searched within myself…I couldn’t deny what I already knew…

We play the home videos our parents and their parents and their parents played…

But my heart was tired of always….smiling for the camera and putting on love as if it was a golden display…

Perfect pictures and memories made to last forever…

But along the way those real emotional ties we closed our eyes to permanently sever…

You loved me the only way you knew how to and somehow I know the right thing for me is to forgive…

Resentment and pain shouldn’t be the reasons you choose to live…

Because I see the hurt reflecting in your eyes…

I felt the loss and emptiness of your rage and endless lies…

But when I saw you fully for the first time I couldn’t hold anything but love…

Every blessing and gift we’ll ever have always comes from up above…

And peace is all I could ever wish for you in my heart of hearts…

Doesn’t everyone deserve a clean slate and a new and more beautiful start…
