Waves of Forgiveness

Your heart like tranquil waters,

Smooth sailing,

On peaceful seas,


Suddenly halted,

By the crashing wave,

Of my outburst.


Set adrift,

By my choppy undercurrent;


The life inside your heart,

Now as tepid water,

Stagnant and clipped…


Thankfully raised up,

In the wake of,

My amends.


Your waves of forgiveness,

Soothe my silakbo.
