I have trusted, in my life

good men, good women

once, twice, an infinity of times

have by these very men, women

been sadly undeceived

once, twice, an infinity of times

its easier to forgive once, twice

than an infinity, a million, or even

Jesus seventy times seven

bigger numbers are always hard

with all that weight they carry

yet forgiveness lightens

though nourished by tears
