Forgive yourself the time has come,

let it rest in peace

Grieve no more on past regrets

let the anguish cease.


Forgive yourself and carry on

hold your head up high.

Say you’re sorry to the ones you love

and leave the past behind.


Take the life that you once knew,

and kiss it up to God.

There is no hiding anymore,

You’ve torn down that Facade.


Wipe the slate and start again

Your looking back is done

You once were your worst enemy

Today you’ve finally won.


Look in the mirror and be proud

That those other days are through

Look at yourself and be content,

Bid the past adieu
