If you must

If you’re going to leave

Baby, quietly do it slow

But I’m- never going let go

My heart don’t work that way

It never did, as you well know

It’s what you told me

You love about me- the most


I’ll hurt secretly inside

I’ll eventually swallow my pride

And the tears I’ll never show

Will become hidden snowflakes

Falling on the man I’ll become

I always did love, a winter land

I’ll let the snow bury our past   

Leave with all my reasons

To be happy and convincing

That love is worth having

Baby, if you’re going to leave me

Do it- when I’m not looking

I’ll never be able to handle

If you stopped … to look back
