I'll tell you in a coward's way,
What I wish I wouldn't say.
We both hoped – I think –
For something more,
But the key's been turned and lost
To that dreamlike door.
You said someday;
I said okay.
You spoke of like and lust and laughter;
I dreamed too much of ever after.
Am I wrong
To not let you know
That I've already
Let you go?
I think you know
In your heart of hearts
That it's time
For us to part,
Else why would you be so quiet
Like the shadow of the piet?
You were the first
I gave my heart to;
The first love
I bid adieu.
