I thought long and hard about forgiving you--

but your lifetime's mate wastes away daily
all the ferocity you displayed in your lives

ebbs out slowly in illness and age
as a lifetime of sins breaks you to your soul

devoted to serving this once vital shell
with a love that kills slowly because it IS love--

and forgiveness has finally found its way in this

all of us diminished--all of us done--
all of us waiting for the release...
