The Blues

When you told me that you were leaving,

It deeply distressed me.

Honestly, I couldn’t act rationally.

I didn’t beg you not to go.

And when you left me,

I didn’t beg you to come back.


Honey, I didn’t want to lose you,

But I said nothing to convince you to stay.

I knew that I was wrong.

My heart was filled with regret,

But I didn’t apologize to you.

And I didn’t ask for your forgiveness.


You were so angry with me.

Did you think I was affected by ego or pride?

No, that’s not what happened.

I was going through a rough time in my life.

And I just gave up easily.

Whatever is meant to happen will happen.


Now I want you to take me back,

But I don’t know what to say.

What can say that you don’t already know?

You knew that I loved you,

And yet you broke up with me.

My love for you didn’t make a difference.
