I would not ask you to forget
How I've betrayed your trust.
I'm asking, though, that you forgive
Because I feel I must.

I can't just let our friendship go
Nor let this silence last.
I know I can't undo what's done,
But, please, let past be past.

Let my mistake be memory
Where you may keep your pain,
While I annihilate this thing
I'll never do again.

And let us once again renew
A friendship that is real:
Limping, yes, but still alive,
With wounds that time can heal.
