Is It Time



Are you ready for forgiveness,
  has that time finally come

You’ve done everything else in life,
  holding back on just that one

Is it time to say “I’m sorry,”
  for the hurt and pain you’ve caused

Is it time to shed false glory,
  and end this dreadful pause

Is it time to try and reconnect,
  with those loved ones that you left

Is it time your pride no longer hides,
  behind the grandest theft

Are the tears then real for what’s gone by,
  to which river do they flow

Has the time now come to stem the tide
  —and let your feelings show
