I am sorry but I have to do this, I hope you understand,
I feel so weak, I feel in love, and feelings are so strong.
My heart is beating fast, it hurts, I barely can stand.
I love you, strong and painfully, and yes, I know it’s wrong!
I have to leave, I have to go, I do it for us both:
I’ll gain the freedom over time, you won’t have to pretend.
I look at you, I touch your face and our lips so close,
I can’t believe that this is it, it’s coming to an end…
I never thought that it would pass, and we were the real deal,
I was so wrong, I was naïve, and trusted every word.
My pain is mine, and only mine, I know I can conceal,
And I am sure that’s the way that you would have preferred.
I have to go, I set you free and you don’t have to know,
That love remains with me for good and I will keep it safe.
I have to go, I walk away but I will do it slow,
So I can take another breath of air that you breathe.
I have to do this, don’t know how, so I will just devise,
I smile at you so you don’t know internally I wail.
One last attempt to sneak a peak at those beloved eyes,
I won’t forget them and my memory will keep every detail.
I have to go, it is the time, it hurts to make that stride,
I feel you looking but I’m glad you do not say a word.
The pain unbearable that sears is burning me inside,
Because today it is the day when my love was interred.
