Giving the gifts of forgiveness (poem)

Special gifts you can give at Christmas, or anytime

Giving the gifts of forgiveness

The gifts of forgiveness are wrapped up with thoughtfulness,
Each gift is selected with a touch of tenderness.
Each gift has a purpose, special to those who receive,
To encourage them in your forgiveness, to believe.

There’s the gift of understanding, that you understand why,
How it all went wrong, and can we give it another try.
There’s the gift of peace, saying please let the anger go?
Let’s find some harmony and let the peacefulness grow.

It includes an apology, regardless of who was right,
Saying ‘let’s forgive and forget’, let the past fade from sight,
There is the salve of healing, for the wounds and the pain,
To mend the scars and make the friendship healthy again.

Lastly there’s the gift of kindness, letting them know you care,
That in any problems they may face, then you will be there.
The gifts of forgiveness are always handmade and true,
Delivered by hand and made within the heart of you.
