Have I abandoned you?
As so many times you have deserted me?

Did I take away your courage?
Your will to ask for what you want?

Have I stolen your secrets?
The inner feelings of your soul?

Did I shatter your world?
As I shattered your dreams of our endurance?

Are you weakened at heart?
Finding it hard to find one breath of life?

Do you feel deserted?
As I have abandoned you?

I’m sorry.
