Can we forgive as
Children do, and play* again
Before tears have dried?

Can we forgive as/
Kids do, and play together/
Before tears have dried?

A young mother of two children, 4 and 2 years old, told how her kids would sometimes fight, but then feel bad. One would say to the other “I’m sorry”, and the other would say “It’s okay”, and they’d be playing together again “before their tears had even dried.”
I wish I could do that.
