If I could turn back the time I would.
If we had another chance.
If we can heal the wounds we should,
If only for one dance.
If I could understand your pain.
If you could understand mine.
If only time could heal those wounds
we no longer would be in the rain.
If only we remember the good.
If only we can forget the bad.
Then we could reach out and connect our hands
and never again feel sad.
If the world would stop today
Would we have regret.
Would we look up to God and say
One more day not yet.
So why not put the past behind
and try again one more time.

Forgiveness for some comes easy, and for others proves difficult. If only it came easy for everyone would our world be with less pain...I especially loved this verse....Thank you Helen for sharing this wonderful write with me.....

"If only we remember the good.

If only we can forget the bad.

Then we could reach out and connect our hands

and never again feel sad."

It is good to remember past mistakes, they are life lessons every bit as much as the good things we have lived through. Forgiveness isn't difficult if one feels the offender is genuine in his/her regret. Trying one more time...well that might take more than forgiveness, it might take some BIG adjustments and compromise. Forgiveness is possible and helps heal if both parties are on the same page.

To just forgive and forget sounds so simple to do, but often is so difficult to accomplish. I think it's because feelings and foolish pride get in the way. Honest and well written Helen.  Henry

To put the past behind and forgive...sometimes the hardest thing to ever do.

I know from experience, still I have some forgiving to do, I know it is the

right thing to do, but for me the hardest. Great write Lady. You have a gentle

way with words.
