Would you be willing?

Would you be willing
To begin again each day
And see through new eyes
 
Would you be willing
To listen to the people
Who say you hurt them
 
Would you be willing
To ask them to forgive you
For whatever is your part
Not to be defensive
To let them know you accept
Your responsibility
 
Would you be willing
To declare your intentions
And admit your faults
 
Would you be willing
To choose to be kind
Even when you’re hurt
 
Would you be willing
To not judge motivation
And forgive freely
 
Would you be willing
To accept amazing love
To know that you are forgiven
And cherished by One
Who knows all of your story
And delights in your presence
