post script

I suppose we should be proud of ourselves
now that we’ve got everything that we’re
supposed to want

and I suppose I’ve got no right to complain—
(after all, I’d like to pretend I
could be gallant)...

and I’m not proud I let you down—
around the world, across this town...

take the years gone by and wash them away:
after all, you never were one to
regret one thing.

and I suppose I should be wishing you well:
I hope you’re feeling safe now, and loved now,
and everything

and I’m so proud you let me go—
you’re so much better off, I know—

so I know you will forgive me, my dear
when I say:
I can wake and feel you near me—
once in a while—it’s true.

But I’ve had a long, long day
so many miles away
and you’ll never have to say
anything at all...

you’ll never have to say
anything at all...

& I don’t expect to hear
anything at all...

(don’t even worry, dear...)
anything at all...
