For When Corruption There Departs

November 22, 2007
By Abigail Schwarz, New Canaan, CT

For when corruption there departs
There lies compassion in all hearts
Though motives may have been malign
It is our choices that define
There never was a sinner pure
But repent there can procure
And though I did upon my will
I pray that you forgive me still
I would with all my heart take back
And choose a more noble track
So I hope that with my blood you find
Forgiveness if you’re so inclined
I can truly say with all my soul
I loved you beyond all control
