My Broken Heart

Why do you ask me why
I have chosen to say good-bye?

I’m tired of waiting here like a fool
for you to tell me what you want.

I’ve grown weary of imagining
you tell me this is the end.

I’d rather make your decision for you
than risk the heartbreak of rejection.

But it hurts just the same.
