How Do We Forgive Our Fathers?

We had a fire circle out at the coast last night with the theme: Honoring our Fathers and Grandfathers and this would have contributed much to our talking--actually, I think this is a summary of our sharing:
forgiving our fathers
by dick lourie

maybe in a dream: he's in your power
you twist his arm but you're not sure it was
he that stole your money you feel calmer
and you decide to let him go free

or he's the one (as in a dream of mine)
I must pull from the water but I never
knew it or wouldn't have done it until
I saw the street-theater play so close up
I was moved to actions I'd never before taken
