My Goodbye

Do not cry, nor shed your precious tears,
for I decided. I chose to end! The pain and fears.
Do not remorse, nor carry the guilt,
for it was mine. Which weighed on me, like sand and silt.
Do not question your involvement, your role,
for you had none, it was me, fully and whole.

Do, please! accept my apology, my final goodbye.
Do, please, understand it was not you, but I.
I, who could go no further.
I, who could no longer try.
I, who had to say,
