God came into my dreams last night.
And told me please come down with me.
There something I want you to write,
on your computer screen.

It seems you forgotten something before
you went to bed.
You didn't tell Doreen sorry for everything
you said.

But Lord at this point and time I
don't really feel this way.
And I really wouldn't know exactly what
to say.

If you cannot forgive in life.
Then how do you expect for me to forgive
you in death?

Lord I've allways followed you in your
righteous ways.

Then if you have allways followed me in
your righteous ways.
You'll turn on your computer screen and
this is what you'll say.

Doreen I'm sorry and will you forgive me
for every wrong I've done.
Sometimes it takes a bigger person to
simply walk away.
But then what would that do for the
sorrys of today?

Thank you, Delores. Apology accepted. And I too apologize if I said anything to hurt your feelings. It was unintentional. Here's a poem I wrote a few years back on the subject of forgiveness.

All Mankind’s Infection

Christ said that we are to forgive
the way that He’s forgiven.
And so we look at how we live
and how we should be livin’.

When someone lies or treats us wrong
or outright disrespects us,
He’s there to stand up in our stead
so the hurt does not infect us.

Not one of us, no not a one,
has ever lived perfection.
Instead we’re riddled by the pain
of all mankind’s infection.
We all have erred, we all have lied,
and lived an insurrection.
For sure this is the why He died
for He is our Correction.

And so He said to all the crowd
who threw stones at Magdeliene,
“Let he who’s perfect be allowed,
since all of you have sinned.”
And then He told them blatantly
that when one apologizes,
we must forgive and let Him lead
even as our pain arises.

For how is He to then forgive
the errors that we’ve made...
if we have not forgiven theirs?
His life was the just trade.

And so I ask you with these words
to in your heart forgive me
the way you claimed you did before,
when truth you did not give me.
Even though you’ve never hurt me
as I’ve done to you,
another may need an apology
if to yourself you’re true.

A friendship is a treasured thing
that time cannot replace
and sins gone by (regretted still)
can never be erased.

—Doreen Peri
