to forgive and forget

English: A hungry baby yelling and crying.

I hold the hungry baby as her parents
warm up the bottle of mother’s milk for me
she is crying her little lungs out
so desperately and inconsolably

within seconds she is happy and contented
when the warm milk is finally given
with tears now gone she looks at me
and for the delay I am totally forgiven

as an adult looking at her now happily feeding
I feel so amazed and so sweetly blessed
and of that innocent capacity to forgive and forget
I am now envious and so thoroughly impressed
