We Forgive You

Dutch designers Lernert & Sander send a message to their imitators.
Lernert & Sander

Dear friends and colleagues

by this email, be it known:

we  stumbled upon work of yours

resembling our own.

 

Angry in our studio

we intimately dared

to call you “copy-cat”,

but now … just let it be.

 

CHORUS: 1

It’s okay, it’s all right!

Let our email prove

the future is bright.

We forgive you, from the heart

Give our partnership

a brand new start!

 

CHORUS: 2

It’s okay, it’s really fine!

The past is in the past

 and forgiveness is divine

We forgive you, we really do!

May this email

be a blessing to you!

 

VERS 3:

Please take to heart

This message we send

We forgive and forget

So our relationship can mend

 

God in His wisdom

Gave us a nudge

We’ve dropped the hatchet

And don’t hold a grudge

 

CHORUS: 1

It’s okay, it’s all right!

Let our email prove

the future is bright.

We forgive you, from the heart

Let’s give our partnership

a brand new start!

 

God forgives, and we should try

To forgive and forget to see eye-to-eye

No resentment, and full of love …

Lets count our blessings from Above!

 

CHORUS: 2

It’s okay, it’s really fine!

The past is in the past

 and forgiveness is divine

We forgive you, we really do!

May this email

be a blessing to you!

 

We forgive, we really do!

May this email

be a blessing to you!
