Fountain of Forgiveness

I shall fly on wings with this serpent of mine
So that I may partake of healing waters
To remember those who scorned me long ago
Not to ask forgiveness
There is nothing to forgive
To love children long gone is easy
To love he whom I loved for many years is no burden
I do not need to drink of the Crystalline waters
The past has been forgiven long ago
I will rest and reminis without tears,
remembering those whose blood runs through my veins and
mine through theirs
I drink only at the fountain to quench my thirst.... LOis Daley

Oh Lois, this is beautiful and exactly how I feel about old wounds.
