7. The Last Letter – Rex Griffin 1937


Why do you treat me as if I were only a friend
What have I done that has made you so different and cold
Sometimes I wonder if you'll be contented again
Will you be happy when you are withered and old
I cannot offer you diamonds and mansions so fine
I cannot buy you the clothes that your young body craves
But if you say that you long to forever be mine
Think of the heartaches, the tears, and the sorrows you'll save
When you are lonely and tired of another man's gold
When you are wary remember this letter, my own
D on't try to answer, though I suffer anguish untold
If you don't love me, I wish you would leave me alone
While I am writing this letter I think of the past
And of the promises that you are braking so free
But to this world I will soon say my farewell at last
I will be gone when you read this last letter from me.
Why do you treat me as if I were only a friend
What have I done that has made you so different and cold
Sometimes I wonder if you'll be contented again
Will you be happy when you are withered and old
