Forgiveness Poems about Love
Poems about Forgiving
Forgiveness in a relationship of love is essential. We all make mistakes and we must make amends and fix the relationship. There is a certain sadness in breaking the illusion of the perfect relationship. However, for those that pass the hurdle of forgiveness, they will find that their relationship is stronger and more meaningful than ever before. Before the first fight, the relationship is like a fragile egg. Once that illusion is broken the relationship becomes much stronger. You become aware that your relationship can survive a disagreement.
21 Poems about Forgiveness and Love
The Power Of Forgiveness
Some people view forgiveness
As a virtue for the weak.
An act of mercy undeserved,
That serves no useful need.
They stand firmly in their judgment
And won't consider a mistake.
They prefer to hold a senseless grudge
Than accept amends when made.
They feel they have some godly right
To reject and criticize.
They're possessed by righteous anger,
And consumed by pointless pride.
They're focused on how they've been wronged,
And won't be made the fool again.
So they feel they must avenge themselves
By refusing to give in.
They will sacrifice their family,
Or forsake a long-time friend.
Do anything they have to do
To be the winner in the end.
Or perhaps it's that they can't resolve
The depth of all their hurt,
Caused when someone they've trusted,
Left them questioning their worth.
But no matter why the struggle,
Out of pride or out of fear,
Not being able to forgive
Can cause the loss of ones most dear.
Yes, forgiveness is a virtue,
They even say it is divine.
But more than that it sets you free
From what weighs you down inside.
The best way to approach this life
Is to ask forgiveness and to forgive.
There's a balance to this crazy world,
So live and just let live.Latest Shared Story

2. ForgivenessIs Our Marriage Worth Saving? Poem
How could it be that we let our love fall?
There were times in our life that we had it all.
As the weather got colder, my attention did shift,
but I could never be ready for this.
Yes, my attitude changed. Then you cut me so deep.
Is it possible to push a woman to cheat?
So I pray not for gold nor for worldly riches.
I pray for strength, wisdom, and forgiveness.
Did I not tell you enough how beautiful you are?
Do I deserve the bleeding of this never healing scar?
Would it be different that night if I said please don't go?
That me and the kids love you, that you're food for my soul.
But I didn't; swore and hollered with names,
Not knowing our love would never be the same.
Then you told me what happened and I started to cry,
And I felt like half of my spiritual body had died.
As much as you're sorry, should I take some of the blame?
Should I forgive and forget? Would you do the same?
Is our marriage worth saving? Have I any more to give this?
I ask the Lord for strength, wisdom, and forgiveness.Latest Shared Story

Poem About Forgiveness
When resentment and offense
Invade the very crevices of your heart
It burns fierce like sulfur
As it forces love to depart.
Causing only the mention of a name
To consume you with hate
As its poison reeks havoc
on the next generation's fate
This grudge festers on
Keeping you imprisoned in pain
Causing every life force around you
To bear the effects of your strain
For hate and love
Cannot reside in one heart
Just as hate takes a family
And tears it all apart
Without forgiveness the heart dies
As it mourns the loss of love
Never understanding its very being
Is created in the heavens above
So then, how can we be reconciled
To God, who is LOVE, the creator of life
If the heart still remains
Unforgiving and full of strife?
I believe mankind's greatest lesson
What we are sent here to learn
Is how to love God and our neighbor
Before we return
So what's more valuable to you
Is it love or is it pride?
Because a heart without love
Has already died!
And understand that if pride
Is what you choose
There are many generations to follow
Who have everything to lose!
Ask love to return again
And invade every crevice of your heart
Seek the courage to make amends
Let love give you a new start!Latest Shared Story

I'm sorry for hurting you, like the way I do
I'm sorry for the hurtful things I always say to you
We know the fight will never last
but still the amount they do
I'd like to say I'm sorry for everything I put you through.
It kills me when we fight, and it scares me too
I always make you cry and it kills me when you do
As I write this now, I know this much is true
I love you with all my heart and will always be with you.Latest Shared Story

6. Broken HeartPoem To Cheating Boyfriend
I knew that this would happen,
that you would break my heart.
It was stupid of me not to listen.
I was stupid from the start.
You told me you were different;
now I know you are all the same.
I'm in a lot of pain.
It's hard for me to hate you.
It's hard for me not to care,
because always in my mind she is going to be there.
I want to forget it; I'm going insane.
Am I listening to my heart or thinking with my brain?
I wish I knew why you did it,
what you were thinking at the time,
but then I know I don't want to know
anything more would drive me insane.
I love you but I wish I was strong.
You don't deserve me now.
Hopefully you can prove me wrong.
I'll always love you, but you have really broken my heart.
Hope you know how to fix it because believe me I can't.

My words were not that of a kind person.
Hurtful words that should have never entered my mind
But they did, and they can be erased in time.
Just watch, you'll see.
I'll try harder; it'll get better.
I promise I will be better.
I'll smile every time I see you.
There has got to be something that I can do or say,
Something that will make you want to stay.
Don't leave me alone, not like this.
I only just found you, my only one.
We can't possibly be over and done.
Please, tell me I'm still in your heart.
Let me show you that I can appreciate you more
Every day, more than the day before.
PLEASE, I LOVE YOU!

8. SorryTry To Forgive Me Poem
Being sorry can be very hard when we're overwhelmed with pride,
But sometimes our pride must take a fall before we lose out.
And when we have to say sorry, we should mean it from our soul.
A meaningless sorry is like a broken promise to the heart.
And it only hurts more in the end, bringing bitter resentment,
And leading to the loss of a love that should be eternal.
Bringing us back down to earth from the fairy tale world of our mind,
With a pain that is maddening, physical and sometimes critical.
My heart is weeping tears of blood for the pain that I've caused you,
And it's crying out my apologies to your mind,
Pleading for your forgiveness for my unfortunate outbursts.
I never meant in a million years to be so unkind.
I have made mistakes in the past but never as serious as this,
And I know I will only have myself to blame if you leave,
And that scares me more than I've ever been scared in my life,
For you're my true motivation, the only real thing in which I believe.
Everything else is just a fantasy to my egotistical ideals.
It's always been me, me, me for far too long,
And lately I haven't given even a passing thought to your concerns.
I let them all fly past me, but now I know I was wrong.
You were reaching out to me in your time of uncertainty and sorrow,
While all I cared about was me and what was mine,
And as I watch you pack your bags with tears streaming down my cheeks,
Too late, I feel all your angst and pain.
And all that's left for me to do is say sorry in a sincere way,
With an apology that comes from deep inside my soul.
It's all I have left to offer for your love and your loyalty.
It's just a pity that my own loyalty I couldn't hold.
Now all I have left of you are the memories of the goodness I have lost,
And that loss brings a sadness every time I think of your name.
And my heart yearns to be able to turn back the hands of time,
To correct the mistakes I've made and start again.
So please take time to think about what I've said, as it comes from the heart.
Take time and try to forgive me my failure to deliver,
And if you can't, then cast me out of your life never to return,
And I will hang my head in shame...forever.Latest Shared Story

Poem About Distance In Marriage
Wiping away the tears, as memories flood into view.
Through the haze I glance at parts of me you never knew.
Lost in the fog of doubt and constant regret,
For thirteen years hid the real us from when we first met.
Imprisoned in this place because of mistakes long since made,
Blindly leading us down this path to us both feeling betrayed.
Gathering up the pieces of our shattered expectations,
Finally clearly seeing what remains in my quest for reconciliation.
Now uncertain of what the future brings,
I take your hand, as you take mine - and we wear our rings...
10. I Forgive YouThe Faith We Possess For Love
Tears rolled down her cheeks,
for she was betrayed again.
Her heart shrunk, yes.
She felt the pain.
Deliberately was it done
to hurt her.
She was broken,
but not into a million pieces.
Just one part,
the part which held her faith.
She had lost her trust in love,
so she promised to build one again.
She wiped off her tears
and gently said,
"I FORGIVE YOU."Latest Shared Story

Forgiveness Poem For Him
My mind racing in confusion,
so scared to speak a word.
My mouth starts to move,
but a word was unheard.
My heart racing so fast,
love comes to mind,
tears in my heart
that couldn't begin to speak the pain,
but every time I see you,
I remember that sweet kiss you put upon my face.
A love that never begins to fade away
'cause my heart calls out your name,
repeating the pain I caused you every day,
but my desire is to love you - til death do us part,
but that same question still remains in my heart.
Even though you are gone, I can't let you go.
I have so many things I want you to know.
I'm not trying to hide myself in tears,
but I only had a few years.
I'm sorry I didn't show you my love,
but I'm not ready to travel or give up.
I need you by my side
so you again can be mine.
I want you to grow old along with me;
the best is yet to be,
so bless the memories within your heart.
Please don't forget about them and tear them apart.
I'm sorry I hurt you; I know now I was wrong,
but remember, we all stumble.
Every one of us do wrong,
so will you give me your hand,
and help me through this too?
I know you're still hurt, and I'm sorry for that too.
Maybe one day you'll realize it's true.

12. Why It Hurts
I don't understand why there's pressure inside,
but the pain that comes from it brings a tear to my eye,
I haven't talked or seen you in a long time,
so why do I still feel pain inside,
is it a heart attack or is my heart trying to put itself back,
from the years of miss-use broken in pieces, quarters, and halves,
when I finally have the courage to look at your page,
I see you've grown, but I have aged,
you're so beautiful, you look like an angel to me,
but by now I know you've forgotten all about me,
I don't blame you, I would to,
after all the nasty things I said to you,
but you have to understand I don't have the time to play the kid,
I have a lot of work and time put in,
but for some reason all my songs are about you,
at this point I feel lost without you,
you were my happiest inspiration to sing about and write,
but now you're the reason why I can't sleep at night,
but I know I must learn to forget,
practice ignorance pretend to not exist,
but as my last message,
thoughts about you,
I want you to know how much I think about you,
if fate wanted us to be together then together we shall be,
but for now I will forget about you and me,
before I push the reset button for my heart,
there still a chance for a start,
just tell me you miss me and I'll back away,
then in my heart you will stay.Latest Shared Story

14. Must AdmitDon't Hurt Me Again
I must admit,
My heart was hit.
You broke it apart,
Cut through real smart.
But you fixed it,
You made it fit.
You looked into my eyes,
While I called you out on your lies.
You held me tight,
Just like you did that night.
I closed my eyes and took a deep breath,
Knowing this is a moment I shouldn't forget.
Just hope you're here to stay,
Not here to play.
Just love me like you have,
And don't cut my heart in half.
15. One Life We LeadMy Girlfriend Cheated On Me
The biggest risk a heart can take,
A second chance, it's there to make.
Turned into three, there can't be four,
Gone from your life, if it turns more.
I can't rule your life for you,
The choice is yours, with what to do.
Though if it comes, please spare me this,
Your love for me cannot exist.
Inside I have, but nothing left,
In times of love, it feels like death.
It's taken more than I first knew,
I had to give, my strength it's through.
I'm only human, man and boy,
Don't treat me like I'm just a toy.
I hope from now, you'll think of me,
Through distance, love, brutality.
One life we lead, to walk this land,
At times it's hard, at times it's grand.
Mistakes we'll make, through them we grow,
It's far too hard to see you go.
If you do care, then I believe,
We'll make it through, this time to grieve.
And out the other side we'll go,
Through, thick, through thin, through rain through snow.
The future comes, the past, forgot,
Dishonesty, it starts to rot.
No lies be told, we start as new,
From you to me, from me to you.
One year, it's down, though not through ease,
Two more, we can, we must, I plead.
Please keep these thoughts so you can see,
How much in life, you mean to me.
I love you.
I forgive you.
But don't take advantage of that.
Your wicked tongue,
It speeks much evil.
Your pallid face,
You give no hope,
Your weakness collides.
You're nothing but a liar,
And a show-off.
You give no support,
Your mercy goes to you only,
Which shows your hate.
Hate is what you get back,
After the back-stabs,
And the tortures you gave.
Now no one cares of your fate,
Even if you die,
You are now spoken by bane words.
But yet I forgive your lies,
And your back-stabs that hurt.
I forgive your derisiveness,
And yet your treachery...
I forgive you.
For that is what God would do.Latest Shared Story

and causes me pain,
I wish I could just see him again,
I thought we would be together,
from now till forever,
but something took that away,
now I had to start my own days,
but why am I still stuck
carrying the pain,
I thought the pain was over
till I spoke of your name
now it's all back to haunt me again
I still hold the memories of you and I
why oh why did we have to fight
we were both young
but I thought it was true love
but then you had to turn
to those damn drugs
they tore us apart
and caused us both pain
do you ever wish you could hold me again?
now it's too late
now it's all gone
because now we both chose to move on.
do you ever wonder
do you still care
do you ever shed tears,
I didn't I was being strong
that's how I learned to move on
but now it's back to haunt me
and I realize I still care
I wish I could turn back all the years
and make you stop
and make you listen
and make you see
that you were meant to only be with me.
we use to laugh
we use to love
we use to be close as a dove
now everyone will see why I hate drugs
they cause problems
they cause pain
gosh I wish you could see me once again
I love to laugh
I love to love
gosh all I wanted was your sweet hugs

19. The Smile
Bronze shadows pallid against the tears of time
casting wonder on faceless images void of depth.
She walked with poise and grace as the hour rang
calling my name, a warm filled tune on endless breath.
The moment was brief yet set in unbridled granite,
so there was no hope of breaking her binding grasp.
Cascading memories from life's immortal chasms
brought a peace I knew her heart could make last.
When the darkness crept in to steal her away
by deception disguised as worthwhile gain.
The pain endured and weeping waves spent
tried to end our dream with unrequited blame.
Stoical visions danced candidly through the grief,
numbing expansions of wondrous times gone past.
Fighting the loveless demon that tore her astray
I was deciding the fate of a tumultuous caste.
Quietly I watched her silken and sultry moves,
the same as seen the years since our eyes met.
Weighing the countless graciousness from the err,
I realized with her smile she had paid her debt.
To my good friend
Why did I have not a word to say?
Yet we just kept moving on our unsteady way
Was it just me; did we not see a day when love was free.
What was I to do we got old it happens we changed.
Don't look at me like that I am sorry I got so mad
How dare you, make me so sad
I guess I still just cannot let it go
However, I did love you
I am in love again as I was with you
He is a good man
We are getting married someday soon
He has a fast car an a good job
What happened with us?
Why did we give up so fast?
Why did you give up on me first?
Why why why why!!!
I am still angry with you because of this
I hated you; loved you
What was I to do?
At that time
So thank you
For being my first
Thank you for showing me love
No wait that is not true
The love was it real
The pain that was me hurting wanting
From things only I could see
Moreover, I am sorry for blaming them on you
When I was a younger one
You where my lover
I had so many dreams
I wanted to have your baby
In addition, I tried to do that
Nevertheless, it never happened
I hated me for that
However, I never told you
Did you know I use to cry my self to sleep?
Because of you
I would not show it on the outside
Nevertheless, I did almost every night
I would cry
When you drank to much beer
I would cry
When you were not there to hold back my pain
I would cry
When you smoked to much weed
And I would cry
When you could not say I love you
Can you see it now do you understand
Why I loved you
Moreover, why it was wrong of you
I wish I knew you and loved you as a sober man
You never gave me that side of you
That is when my love turned to distrust
Moreover, hope turned to pain
And my heart to stone
But this new man in my life
Broke away the stone
Around my heart
And set it free
God I love him so
I just wanted you to know
I am so happy now
He is the one
Thank you for this life lesson
And for opening my eyes
As well as my hart
Ps: I hope you are happyLatest Shared Story
