I’d cry for you if I could but I can’t, and I won’t.
I love you now more than I ever did before
And saying goodbye breaks my heart.

I’ll lie to myself and I’ll lie to you just to make us feel better.
Maybe we’ll meet again, maybe we won’t.
Will you remember me? I hope so, but why?
You remembering won’t change anything…
But the thought of you forgetting is heartbreaking.

I love you and never want to say goodbye.
My mind knows I love others more and would
Choose them over you and yet
To think I’ll never see you again makes me crumble.

The world is beautiful and so are you.
However now I just want to curl up
And cry, and cry, and cry.

Sometimes sorrow is just too much and then sometimes…
I promise myself each time I’ll change and
Maybe I do but it is too little.

I know the world is beautiful but sometimes
Things blind me to that beauty and
Sometimes that beauty crushes me.

The world does not stop changing and it is
Destroying me, and yet…I don’t know.
Why? And yet I know why.

It is a tragedy but it is beautiful.
It is beautiful, so very beautiful
But it is tragic.

Perhaps in heaven we get the beauty without the tragedy…perhaps.

I know what I feel and it hurts.
But would I change it?
To feel happy do you need to feel sad? Is the pain worth the happiness?
I don’t know but I’ll do, I’ll do and I’ll deserve what follows.

I thank you from the bottom of my heart and
I hope I have made your life even a little better.
I’m sorry I wasn’t as good as I could have been,
I’m really sorry.

Guide me please.
