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

  1. 1. Forgiveness Is Divine

    This poem is about people who hold on to grudges and can't forgive and how destructive that is.

    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.

  3. 2. Forgiveness

    • By Jesse
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems January 2012

    Can you push a woman to cheat? Is love a strong enough force to forgive? This is a husband's release of emotions after infidelity.

    Is 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.

  5. 3. As Much As We Argue

    • By Zach Watson
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems September 2008

    I got into a fight with my girlfriend, and I wrote this poem to make it up to her.

    As much as we argue,
    As much as we fight,
    We always turn it around by the end of the night.

    I really do love you.
    I really do care.
    I really hope you will always be there.

  6. 4. Healing A Broken Family Tree

    I originally wrote the poem called "A Broken Family Tree" 12 years ago. It was published on this site under my married name Lori A. Cain but is now under Lori McBride. The last verse in that poem said "I am one of many, but I alone will go." Since 2001, time has proven that I did not go alone because the Lord was with me. Meanwhile, a new tree has begun just as the original poem said. This poem is about how vital forgiveness is to future generations.

    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!

  7. 5. I'm Sorry For Hurting You

    • By Casey
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2010

    To: Jeffery

    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.

  8. 6. Broken Heart

    • By Latoya B
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems October 2009

    My boyfriend cheated on me. The pain inside won't go away. This poem is to him.

    Poem 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.

  9. 7. Please Don't Leave My Love

    • By Jessica Langton
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2008

    My fiancée and I had brutal words with each other, and this is how I felt at the time. He said, "I don't want to go, but you have been giving me such a hard time." I thought he was going to leave. Thank God he didn'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.

    And he turned with glazed eyes
    "I love you, too."

  10. 8. Sorry

    This poem was written for a friend who was going through a rough period, and I'm glad to say it helped said friend cope. I have put it on here with that friend's permission. Hope it can help others too.

    Try 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.

  11. 9. These 13 Years

    • By Edward Dillion
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems December 2015

    In love and marriage, distance grows as time/life gets in the way. Treasure what you have, and move forward with an open mind and a strong heart.

    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...

    Tears rolled down her cheeks,

    Deliberately was it done
    to hurt her.
    He succeeded.
    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,

  13. 11. My Heart's Desire

    • By Leslie Absher
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems May 2008

    My husband and I split up for four months; it was the hardest thing I ever had to go through. We had a baby boy who went through it with us. For everyone going through what I went through, just have a leap of faith, and I promise you will get through it. It might not be what you want it to be, but you will get through, and everything happens for a reason. My husband and I are back together and now have two boys. Anything is possible.

    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.
    It's coming,
    coming from my heart to you.

  14. 12. Why It Hurts

    • By Jose Pazsoldan
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems October 2011

    My name is Jose Pazsoldan. I'm a independent musician and I've been playing for over 10 years. The poems I will be submitting are poems from my heart, like this one, "Why It Hurts." It's about my first love.

    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.

  15. 13. Just Let It Go

    • By Durwin Davis
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems November 2011

    I'm 17 years old.
    Can't really say I've had any major tragedies in my life or that I have a big dramatic thing that happened that inspired me to start writing poetry.
    I love expressing my feelings in ways other people can relate to, but I like for people to think about my poems and try to extract the true meaning, or at least find a meaning that satisfies themselves.
    As a young black man, I am proud to say I love writing poems to benefit myself and others.

    In time,
    Things come
    Things go

    With love,
    Leaves fall
    Leaves grow

    The morals of life,
    Have no beginning
    Though it seems the trials
    That we face,
    Have no ending

    Words said to hurt,
    With thoughts made to
    The only way to express
    a pain that I feel

    It's about being hurt and then having the person that hurt you say they're sorry and try to fix it

    Don'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.

  17. 15. One Life We Lead

    • By David
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems July 2009

    I've never written any kind of poetry before, but after I found out my girlfriend had cheated on me for the second time, I was inspired to do so. It's taken all I have, but I have forgiven her.

    My 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.

  18. 16. Forgive For That Is What God Would Do

    • By Anna Mcmath
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems October 2009

    Your wicked tongue,
    It speeks much evil.

    Your pallid face,
    You give no hope,
    No strength,
    Your weakness collides.

    You're nothing but a liar,
    A dirty-mouth,
    And a show-off.

    You give no support,
    But pride.
    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,
    Your trifling,
    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,
    Your barbarous,
    And yet your treachery...
    I forgive you.

    For that is what God would do.

    • By Brandy
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems November 2008

    This poem is about the life I went through growing up. We were together for 5 years then he turned to drugs then there it went..

    My heart still hurts,
    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
    but now my heart is squished like a bug
    once again the pain has risen
    now I have to get it back to hidden
    please take care in what ever you do
    but please always know that I did love you..

    I wrote this for my mom she was addicted to drugs the entire time I was growing up she was never around and neither was my dad but a girl needs her mom a little more than her dad

    Despite the heartache and crap you put me through
    I forgive you
    Despite the pain and anger I've had in my life
    I wish you were near
    Despite the tears that fell from my eyes
    I will always love you
    You are my mom and nothing can change that and
    Despite the fact that you were never there
    I still want you to be!!!!!!

    Love Always
    your daughter age 17

  21. 19. The Smile

    • By Howard Bright
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems August 2010

    I often write about past or present relationships. This poem was written about somebody special to me for a number of years that had a moment of indiscretion partly due to being deceived. Struggling with a solution, I thought back to the what was the best thing I admired about her. The smile, her smile, flooded my mind over and over and I knew at that moment that I wanted to see that smile again, so because of that smile I forgave her and we had many more wonderful times together.

    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.

  22. 20. To My Good Friend

    • By Elizabeth Potoczak
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems April 2009

    this is to the man that broke my heart and about the one that put it back together

    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
    Moreover, pain

    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
    For us

    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

    Thank you
    Your Beth

    Ps: I hope you are happy
