I want to tell you that it's not your fault.
You didn't have a choice in the matter,
And you didn't cause my heart to shatter.
It was the past that forced this heart to halt.

Don't squander your money to come see me.
Don't buy flowers to put next to my bed,
For it will only fill your heart with dread.
Don't cry a tear when you think about me.

I want to leave you with a small present.
You want to see the world without worry,
So accept this sum and leave in hurry.
I hope that you will live with times well spent.

I was content to know your existence,
For now I can pass without resistance.
