Absolution

by Gerard Lebel

 

The Starbuck’s line holds two old friends;
Obviously not ready to make amends.
Their eyes meet, they do not speak;
Silent lips leave voices weak.

 

Believing lies, fearing the truth;
Years of tears, looting their youth.
Foolish pride keeps them apart;
Abandoning love, hollows the heart.

 

Absolution rejected causes much pain;
Saving face attempts are all in vain.
They grab their coffee, accepting the loss;
Realizing rolling stones, gather no moss.

 

Turning abruptly, they exit the door;
Reconciliation unfortunately, not in store.
Hardened hearts now turned to stone;
One day may find them, old and alone.

 

Forgiveness resurrects spirit and soul;
Breathing new life, out with the old.
 
Learning to forgive, sets us all free;
Life begins anew, for you… for me.
