Poem: If You Will, Forgive Me

If You Will, Forgive Me

By: Joi Maree Flowers

For the days my presence was absent
For the schedule that never held a time slot for you to fit into
For the thoughts of you that went ignored
When an extended hand should have reached for you
Or a phone call should have been made
For the next times that turned into next times

For my ears that didn't listen
Because my mouth was quick to voice its opinion

For my eyes that only saw the outer
Because the inner I cared not to be introduced to

For my voice that should have spoken up and out
But instead let fear win the victory to silence it

For the brick wall that was built
That should have never separated us

For the loneliness you had to settle into
Because my company never joined you

For these and many more things

I apologize

And ask that you find it in your heart
And soul to forgive me

If you will
