Please Know…

When I finally stopped forever,

And called the end by name…

Please know the words were bitter,

As my heart was being slain.

When I met your gaze so coldly,

Like I could look right past your tears…

Please know that I was fighting myself,

For I shared your pain and fears.

When I shook your hands away from me,

Like I couldn’t stand their feel…

Please know they never lost their warmth;

And I knew that their fire was real.

When you told me all that I meant to you,

And I brushed off your words…

Please know that, though the years would pass,

They’re the only thing I’ve heard.

When I turned my back to walk away,

And my steps would seal our fate…

Please know that at that moment

I felt everything but hate.
