The briefest of conversations,
The most serious tone in her voice,
As she explained the end was here.
I listened, helpless, as she told me,
That I wasn't worth it,
That she didn't feel the same as before.
I watched as she stood to leave,
Avoiding my eyes,
Picking up her bag to walk out of my life.
I told her to wait, a final, desperate attempt,
I told her I'd do anything,
She said: "I don't think there's anything you can do."
And with that, the best two months of my life,
Came to a bitter end,
With tears, regrets and despair in control of me.
The hardest part is not that she's gone,
It's that I can't bring myself to hate her,
I still love her.
But I guess that wasn't enough.
Farewell, you who showed me how to smile,
If I can't do that for you, I hope someone else can.
