Gift

There are days when I wish everything was different
Time was better spent and other choices were made
What to say and what not to say at their right opportunities
Just so that this pain surging between us wasn’t there

Of time and regret I’m aware
Space and seconds can’t heal
In all of this only forgiveness
And I give it to you as a gift

You think back on days gone by with their memories
Pictures scroll by softly bringing a smile
It’s hard not to think of the present as bitter
A reality that betrays the past and what was there

Of time and regret I’m aware
Space and seconds can’t heal
In all of this only forgiveness
And I give it to you as a gift

There are times I think of the pain I’ve been through
And more often I think of the pain you’ve suffered
My hands are bloody from the wounds I’ve caused you
I say I’m sorry I hope one day you’ll meet me there

Of time and regret I’m aware
Space and seconds can’t heal
In all of this only forgiveness
And I give it to you as a gift
No strings attached with this
Love and loyalty I bring
Along with deep hoping
Again we can laugh at the skies
Realize what this gift implies
