I must learn to forgive you

For not knowing who I was

Yet you sat beside me every day


I must learn to forgive you

For all that I have imagined you to be

For maybe not ever even thinking of me


I must learn to forgive you

For doing what you do not mean

For not knowing what you do not know


I must learn to forgive you

For hurting me with your absence of knowing

For not knowing that you have anything to be forgiven for
