I have often thought of the pain you caused
And how to wreak revenge,
But the pain inflicted upon my soul
Matters little in the end.
For happiness is mine at last
After all those hurtful years
And there is no more pain or suffering,
Or broken-hearted tears.
The pain you caused has long since healed
And revenge is no longer sought,
And the happiness I have within
Canít be borrowed, lent or bought.
I have seen you lately from afar,
Oh how old and drawn, you see
Your evil deeds have taken their toll
On your face once so serene.
Your own unhappiness you have caused
By treating me so ill,
And forcing me to leave you there
And swallow that bitter pill
Of knowing that had you been true,
Together we would still be,
A happy family as we were back then,
Not living in misery.
I pity you now the hatred has gone,
That you are the way you are,
Youíll never find joy in the wiles you employ
But only emotional scars.
I leave you now for my happiness,
As if it were a place,
Never again to think of you
Or look upon your face.
I wish you happiness my love,
And I promise no regrets,
But most of all I truly wish
That we had never met.
