Apology Goblet Just one glass to be shared by two A gift given from the heart. For at times in all relationships One person will have to start To be the one to say "I was Wrong" Or to extend a hand in forgiveness. For under God's watchful eyes Your humbleness He will bless. Fill the cup then offer it With forgiveness in your heart. As each of you takes a sip God will bless you in this new start. the hands we hold - the hearts we touch Are the gentle way we grow. Through the years and sometimes tears, We become closer to those we know.         Birdiekity-2000
