Love Is Forgiveness

“Love is Forgiveness”

When I was rude to you,

Unkind and impatient,

You forgave me.

When I made you very angry,

you did not keep a record of my wrongs.

You forgave me.

When my behaviors

scared everyone away but you,

You forgave me.

When others shook their heads,

You could still see my good side;

You forgave me.

I wonder what makes you so forgiving and honorable?

It must be something deep down inside you

that lets you turn the other cheek.

I do believe the answer is:  Love.

You love me.

I am an optimistic, positive person who is a seven year cancer survivor. Since that time I have learned that getting a cancer diagnosis does not always mean an automatic death sentence. I like to share my hope with others and continue to encourage them - no matter who they are or what they need encouragement for. I write poems, prayers, articles, and stories. Recently the premiere issue of my online magazine, http://www.innersunshine.net launched. Thank you for visiting!
