I never wanted it to be you
You who brought joy
Laughter
Smiles
And friendship
Into my life.

I never wanted to tell you
It would cause pain
Sadness
Create a rift
Where I couldn't
Bear one.

I never wanted to hurt you
How could I say
The source of my hurt
My pain
My fear
Came from someone
So dear.

I didn't want this
I didn't want this
I didn't want this
