TITLE: From My Heart to Yours

I caused you grief, but did not try;
my tears flowed, when I saw you cry.
Not only was it you I pained,
but tears from others, fell like rain.
The Lord has taught me through all this,
to search His Word before I miss
His teachings He would have me heed
to not cause someone's heart to bleed.
I'm humbled by forgiveness felt,
but wish so much I would have dealt
with my God-given right to pray
perhaps there'd been no yesterday.
My tears still flow and will a while,
I wiped away your beaming smile,
I know I need to close this book,
in my life and take a look
at what I've learned through all of this
that I have hurt a Christian sis.
I'll focus on my Lord and Saviour
and ask Him to change my behavior.
My reasoning was not to hurt
anyone with my alert.
Lesson learned, go to the source
of any problems for recourse.
I need not say another word
for in my heart I know you've heard
the words of sorrow that I feel
for things I said before I kneeled.
