Do What You Can To Make Things Right

20 Mar

Do what you can to make things right.
Leave no stone unturned, consider what might
be the best way to say “I made a mistake,
what can I do? What will it take
to open the door to friendship once more?”
Do what you can to make things right.
It’s a cold wind that blows through the darkness of night
when two friends can’t find common ground.

It takes courage to admit that a wrong was done,
especially if you have been the one
to cause the friendship to fall apart
by a careless word, a jealous heart.
If the blame is yours, just speak the words.
It takes courage to admit that a wrong was done
and to bask in false pleasures of a victory won
is to cheat yourself and your friend.

Forgiveness bestowed restores and heals;
forgiveness received so often reveals
the rebirth of hope, light in the night
dispelling the shadows, focusing sight
so that friends can walk side by side once again.
Forgiveness bestowed restores and heals.
Try to imagine the joy you will feel
if you do what you can to make things right.

Regardless of blame, in that cold winter’s night
it really won’t matter who’s wrong and who’s right.
Two friends will wait for the dawn.
