The pain remained for years
The stabs remained too deep
Then one day I knelt and prayed
Help me God; through tears I weep.
He showed me I am worthy
He took away my pain
The things you did that hurt me
Are now buried and flow in drains.
I come to you years later
I ask you to sit down
I tell you how you hurt me
Your smile turned to a frown.
You said you had no idea
That your words could cause such harm
You asked me to forgive you
I smiled then took your arm.
Now each morning we walk together
Barefoot and in the sand
We talk, we smile, we laugh
Best friends holding each others hands.
