Fool! You let him see you grieve,
Let him watch the tears leave
Silvery pools upon your cheek.
He knew why you wouldn’t speak.
He saw the ache you wanted to hide,
Heard your heart break deep inside.
Your yearning breast, he knew well
The things you would not tell.
The quick hurt shown in your eyes
Even while your lips spoke lies.
But he knew, ah yes, it is so,
He knew you didn’t want to go.
