please forgive me

Please forgive me in advance

for the things I will not see

for the help I will ignore

when you offer it to me

for the rope I toss aside

when you lower it to me

for words of encouragement

that will not reach my ears

no matter how beautiful

I will not be able to hear

the quicksand of despair is faster and stronger

than I can ever explain

so please forgive me

for the things I just can’t do today

  1. Although I don’t have immediate experience with depression I do know how debilitating it can be. And no amount of thinking can pull you out of it. Please accept a strong, warm hug, while I hold your head to my shoulder. If it helps to know that someone cares, then know that I do. As do a whole lot more of us.
