Time Will Tell

The letter I received from you today

Your words gave me a bitter taste

Why didn't you respect me enough

To break up with me face to face?

How could you be so cruel

Sending a letter like this one from you

Instead of telling me in a kind way

Why you feel like you do?

Do you realize the hurt you've caused

Or is it you never cared about me at all?

Maybe one day you will receive a letter

Like mine or a cold telephone call.

Time will tell....
