Seventy Times Seven

How many times will I forgive your sins?
Seventy times seven, Lucy, if you repent.
Then, like with morn the end of Night begins,
I shall restore your Day, as if it never went.
A guest who reckons not to reckon with his host,
Such is my faith; likely you will yank that ball,
Yet really being hurt is fearing hurt the most:
Only fallen will I be, if I no longer risk the fall.
Seventy times seven, Lucy, you may break my heart.
Because in chancing pain and joy, pole to pole,
I must too allow the hurts that tear a man apart:
Only feeling all is all that keeps me whole.
Seventy times seven, not counting down:
You're a good man, Charlie Brown.
