Apologies Given

Apologies given,
With them expected to receive...
Are not always forthcoming,
With an immediacy to be believed.
Especially when the giving of them done,
Comes too late to contemplate.
Or appreciate when eventually heard,
By someone who has healed to mend...
And to do to find in time all wounds,
Have been forgotten to forgive oneself.

This process is often misunderstood.
By anyone awakening,
To face guilt and remorse and not feel good.
While another they may have abused,
Has long divorced and moved on to live life...
From a suspected prolonged bitterness to fight.
To find a developing of a happy mind.
And with a doing of this to not permit sleepless nights,
Awaiting on someone else after years to admit...
What they did was wrong and can't get over it.
