We May Not See Eye to Eye

A wise and soulful woman on CP; we had exchanged some words
Heated comments flew between us; many which I can't explain
I took to heart the things she said; her opinion warranted its worth
But sadly days went by; needlessly angst left us both in pain

There was some confusion to a post that I'd left upon my site
She came to the rescue of a man of whom she thought she knew
She'd made me realize that what I'd posted was not at all right
Without her having knowledge; the lost empathy within me grew

I'd blocked her from my message list and wished for no contact
Her poetry intrigued me and I could not help but sneak and read
The more I read I saw her heart and soul were deeply so intact
I swore I'd leave no posts; I read, I wept and felt a desperate need

Yes, we have our different views and things we just can't justify
In many ways we're so alike; she's trusting and naive like me
Too much of a trusting soul; she's been hurt and made to cry
My sixth sense I should have used to assist and help me see

She forgivingly viewed my comments that I left for her to read
She answered back to me and apologized for all the pain
What she doesn't realize; she taught me lessons I did need
I was hurting someone foolishly; called me on it, so I gained

This drew attention to her poems; I've learned a great deal
She's so full of wisdom and her life mirrors much like mine
I find it so refreshing to find such honesty and a heart so real
Traits as pure as this in these sad times are just so hard to find

My Friend, I'm honored that you've given me this second chance
I never meant to hurt you, cause bad feelings or to make you cry
Life is for living, speak your mind; as they say, "I hope you dance"
And just remember, part of life is at times we won't see eye to eye.

But it doesn't mean that I don't love you  :o)

Author's Notes:
Dedicated to a very special woman on this site.  Thank you for your restored friendship  :o)  It means the world to me!  Yes, this isn't the most poetic creation in the world.  This is simply your message.

Being both honest and forgiving are two much needed traits in a friendship. I'm so glad this has ended on a good note! Barbie
