This poem was in the November 2011 New Era, it is a good reminder that none of us are perfect and that we all need to forgive others.


By Sidni Masoncup

To forgive
 is not to forget.

To forgive
is really to remember,

That nobody is perfect,

That each of us stumbles
When we want to much to stay upright,

That each of us say things
 we wish we had never said,

That we can all forget that love
 is more important than being right

To forgive
is really remember,

that we are so much more
than our mistakes,

That we are often more kind and caring
than we really think we are

That accepting anothers flaws
can help us accept our own.

To forgive
is to remember,

That the odds are pretty good
that we might soon
 need to be forgiven ourselves,

That life gives us more
than we can handle gracefully.

To forgive
is to remember.

That we have room in our hearts,

to begin again,

and again,

and again.

My Ensign subscription ran out last month, so I missed out on the November issue. What a beautiful poem. Thank you for sharing it! :)
