Many partners who are unable to voice their pain and regret face-to-face with their partners may turn to the written word in lieu of the spoken word. Some of the most helpful tools in marriage forgiveness are poems that express what the lips may be unable to articulate.
Below you will find a few examples of wonderful forgiveness poems. As you read them, consider the author’s point of view and how he or she is expressing both pain and hope.
Options and opportunities
When you are ready, consider writing your own poems to your beloved as an expression of your desire for forgiveness and a restoration of hope. Create a forgiveness box also and deposit the poems to the box while encouraging your partner to do likewise. You will be amazed how this practice opens doors and hearts.
1. WHY MY HEART PONDER
– Surajit Dahal
Why my heart ponder
Why my heart ponder?
I, your offender..
What I gave?
Dark love in a cave…
I promised you a thousand lands
Didn’t give enough sands…
Changing me and my love,
Hiding behind the black scarf..
Hiding me I couldn’t speak,
Feared losing in a streak.
This was my only reason
But turned my passing season..
Now I rattle,
As a foolish cattle
Leaving your land and cheese,
Yet to find me some peace…
If you look inside of your heart,
you can find forgiveness or at least the start
And from that place where you can forgive
is where Hope, and Love, also thrive and live
And with each step that you try to take
and with that chance that your heart might break
Comes so much happiness, and so much strength
which Alone can carry you a fantastic length
For hate and anger will not get you there
and though you say that you just don’t care
You can EASILY avoid the pain on which hate feeds
…the kind of pain that no one needs
Just make the move, take the first stride
let go of the thing known as “Foolish Pride”
Maybe then you can start to repair the past
into something strong, that will mend, and last!
A last word
Do some work on love languages, friend. Your partner may crave a hug or a foot rub more than anything else. Know your partner if you desire to communicate in a way that nourishes her heart.
