If I lost it all last year
because she had been unfaithful
and found comfort in another man
I could forgive that swiftly
without bonds of memory
It would be an easy thing to do.
And if I lost it all
because of something she thought
if she really thought
that I had been untrue
for as wrong as her strong
suspicions might be
I know I could forgive that too.
But if I lost it all
because she lost confidence
in the dreams that I pursued
then forgiveness comes harder
for I’m such a good starter
but poor on my follow through.
