Don’t think that because I still stand by your side am living in any hope,
I just extend my hand when I see you helpless and without any scope,
With all the time gone by and life apart I’ve learnt how to cope,
With vanishing feelings love itself chose to elope.
Don’t bear the guilt that because of you we lost love,
It was gone much before we officially gave it a shove,
There are many things unsaid within though it looks all settled above,
But for the sake of yesterday we decided to hold out the dove.
Don’t laden yourself with angst as I will never ask you why,
With every passing day I know it was best to say good bye,
Though on occasions more than one the past will flash before our eye,
And ‘tis on days like that we wish what we had did not die.
Don’t take my silence as my weakness and my tolerance as a sign of despair,
It is just on times when I have given you another chance beyond fair,
Not because you mean to me or because I care,
I do it so that in my heart and mind am convinced what you’ve let gone is beyond repair.
