Forgive Me

With tears in my eyes

I look into yours

Our eternal lives

Have been suddenly cut short

Though they are closed tight

A new door unlatched.


I feel the distant light.

Free from you now

I cannot come back

You must not be sorry

Nothing did you lack


Now I will keep running.

The gates are wide open

But your eyes are still tight

I promise I was hoping

To tell you my mind

But I told you goodnight.


Tomorrow they will open

I promise you’ll be alright

But I’ll not be there.

The days spent with you

Will remain with me fair


Forgive me Darling

For I had to go

Running is my forte

Commitment is my foe
