I Forgive You

from Fires and Overturned Cars by Valerie Orth



before i went to sleep last night, i read your letter twice
‘cause i'm not gonna lie, i miss you too
but remember when you said that timing is everything
and you had your time now I have mine

looking from a different view
i forgive you

you say you've made me frail and grey but i laugh loudly everyday
i draw from my own strength again and i start to mend
me and this wicker fence to give our friendship a chance
‘cause you were my marching band, you were my biggest fan

looking from a different view
i forgive you

we've gone back and forth, i've said things that hurt
but i haven’t been big enough till now to ask you to

see me from a different view and forgive me too
can you forgive me too?
