If we really want to love

“If we really want to love we must learn how to forgive.”

                                                  ~ Blessed Theresa of Calcutta


I paint in my mind the word Forgive

across our dining room wall

a thousand times, one

time, hugely –

only I’m the only one who can see it.

When I live it

those letters will appear

not along our light cream walls

but across the breadth of our hearts.
