Farewell to Love


Iknow you never meant me harm
But I was wounded by your loveliness,
Your grievous bodily charm,
I was a fool for you and I confess
My life is lost because you've gone away,
I weep at night and dread the coming day,
I dread its emptiness,
As if I heard you say
'It's over now, I want you to get lost,
There is no other way.
You'll have to cry and count the cost
Of loving me, because you were a fool,
The burning of my heart grew cool,
You were another silly boy,
Another trivial, empty toy
I played with for a while,
You might have made me smile,
But now I wash my hands of you,
There's nothing you can say, nothing you can do.'
