If You Don't I'll
Understand


Why did I tell you to go
When I wanted you to stay
Didn't I realize I'd be sorry
After I sent you away?

Why didn't I accept
The love you offered me
Was it I was too blind
To open my eyes and see?

Is it too late to make
Amends for what I have done
Or regretfully is it possible
Another chance, there is none?

No matter what you decide
Please know I love you
Forgiving my mistake I realize
Would be hard for you to do.

If you don't, I'll understand.....
