Lovers Lament

Oh I hate to hurt you
But how can I go on,
Living the lie that is our love,
Pretending nothing’s wrong?
I know how much your heart will ache,
That tears will sting your eyes,
That every day will bring such pain
You’ll cry...too many times.
Remember when you’re feeling sad
My heart will ache with yours,
Knowing that I’ve hurt you
And the sorrow I have caused.
Please forgive me if you can,
For I did love you so,
But now it’s over – what is left,
Except for me to go?
