Forgive me, please!!!
Forgive me, My friend
Forgive me, please, if you can…
For what I have done,
For what you have silently endured without saying a word.
Forgive me if I have acted so cold lately
For not behaving nicely with you.
For remaining silent even when you want to talk nicely
Forgive me for giving those cold angry looks to you.
Forgive me if I was not listening you
For behaving like a stranger when you say words of your beloved
For deliberately keeping mum when your heart was pouring
Forgive me for acting as an enemy in disguise as you speak of your love.
Forgive me for remaining silent as though words of solace are no more wanted
For living like a dead immersed in the thought of a human mirage
For ignoring your fidelity which God has given me for granted
Forgive me for pitiless denial when you always wanted to encourage me.
Forgive me, My dear friend, please, if you can…
For you doing everything for me and me not doing anything
For you might get a friend like me but I may not in this lifetime
Forgive me even when I am not worth your friendship
Forgive me, My friend, forgive me if you can this time…
This poem speaks of the remorse of the poet of losing a dear friend. Fictional work, borrowed in a very subtle way from real life.
