It gives me a little chill
Cause I loved you too dearly my friend
But I won’t hold on to you
Cause impermanence is the rule of the world
And I expect nothing to stay.
You have a life, a world very different
Than mine. A lover next door
And a family two towns away.
They love you.
I have a lover, who loves me too
Far away. And would never be mine.
I have a family somewhere.
Just was never was close to them.
And you my friend, I gave a piece of my heart.
Not knowing we need to part
You hold too many of my secrets.
Secrets, I know not why I shared.
Alas it’s so easy to form a bond
When love comes for free!
You ask me, if it's okay if you leave
How can I tell you to stop
You made a choice, not for me to change
And I'd do nothing for you to stay.
But, it’s time to step back
Before I break my heart
For the millionth time.
Bidding farewell is getting tiring.
Too much wounds left unhealed
Perhaps now I should be numb to pain.
But despite of all that,my friend I love you dearly
And I wish you the best.
