Forgive And Forget
By Jessica Caldwell

(Gabrielle telling this to Xena)
Oh Xena, how could it be?
Were we really too blind to see
that we needed to forgive
and forget, and then live.

We parted after my child
did something entirely wild.
I cannot say I'm sorry enough.
I know that losing a child is tough.

But if you can forgive me,
then we can go on again, you see?
We need each other to keep on living.
So can you be a little forgiving?

(Xena to Gabrielle)
A little forgiving?!
So you can go on living?!
You are responsible for the death of my child.
For that , my hate is all but mild.

I hate you,
and there's nothing you can do,
to make me change my mind,
at least not this least of time.

So leave me, and do not follow.
My heart for you is only hollow.
I will not walk with you,
no matter what you do.

*The day after the Bitter Suite*

(Xena to Gabrielle)
Gabrielle, I forgive you.
For all things you did or did not do.
You are my one and only friend,
and I'd like to keep it that way 'til the end.

Please come back to me,
I want you here, can't you see?
I let my hate and anger come in the way,
and almost ruined a friendship that day.

Come back to me,
we need each other, can't you see?
If you can forgive me, I can forgive you.
So do you forgive me? Do you?

(Gabrielle to Xena)
Yes, I forgive you
for the things that you do.
Let's never fight again,
let's stay friends until the end.

Solan showed us how we were wrong,
with some dancing and a song.
He took us to Illusia,
so to assure you, he didn't lose 'ya.

And to show us how wrong we had been.
To part and hate each other, because of him.
Thanks to Solan, we are back again.
Let's stay friends, until the end.
