Forgive me if I could not be
there for you when you needed me.
I acknowledge your grief
but I won’t ignore my agony.
You may not have been in a state to help yourself.
Still, I will say that I will try
that I may help you in future when
and if you need it genuinely.
I am not carrying any unnecessary guilt
and if you are carrying any negative emotions,
please feel them completely until
you want them to be and let them be released.
I forgive you and you forgive me.
Let us now start afresh being guilt-free.
We had our own reasons
and some lessons to learn.
It is obvious that this is not for those
who don’t flinch an eye before
committing a crime or doing something evil.
They don’t deserve forgiveness at all.
Let us not let the time go by
so much that later in life,
we only have painful feelings
and moments as our memories.
Leave the patterns and systems of belief,
behaviours and habits which don’t work anymore.
Let us bring to ourselves some part of relief
before we reach the other end of the shore.
