Of Course I Understand
Understand? Of course I understand.
I’d do the same thing
If I were in your shoes.
I don’t blame you, I blame myself.
I’ve tried very hard to stop
But I can’t. It’s just something
I have to do. It doesn’t mean
I don’t love you. Not in the least.
You mean everything to me,
And the children. I’m very sorry
This is happening. Whatever I can do
To make it easier I’ll do. The main thing,
For now, is to protect the children.
They really don’t need to know,
I hope you can agree to that. Later,
When they’re older, I’ll explain.
I’ve let you down, terribly, I know.
I don’t know what else to say.
