UNFORGIVNESS

Nothing is as painful,
As unforgiveness to the soul.
A heart that's torn asunder,
With forgiveness becomes whole.

A single kind word spoken,
Means more than countless words.
The three words, "I forgive you,"
Are all that need be heard.

To a soul that has been wounded,
Like a healing, cooling balm;
Forgiveness soothes and comforts,
Till at last the soul is calm.

For the soul that seeks forgiveness,
When forgiveness can't be found;
It struggles vainly everyday,
To hear that simple sound.

The power in those three kind words,
Can heal a heart that's broken.
But that heart cannot begin to heal,
As long as words remain unspoken.

Compassion in it's purest sense,
Reside in those three words.
The three words, "I forgive you,"
Are all that need be heard.
