The Courage To Bend
by Richard Budig 1996


May we begin again?
He wrote neatly
On the page.
I really do love you,
Said another sentence,
And I always will.
The reasons we parted
Were not the reasons,
Were they? he wrote.
We both know truth
Lies beyond the surface.
The question is,
Can we get down to it,
Can we swallow pride,
Can we admit wrongs,
Can we begin again?
He wrote these things
Neatly on the page,
Wondering all along
Whether he had
The courage to send,
And she had
The courage to mend,
And both had
The courage to bend.
