That’s why I hit you today,
for the first time in my life.

Because you opened the letter,
because I wanted you to…
because of mother,
because she told you something she didn’t tell me,
because I love you and you are not my daughter,
because everything could have been different,
because the past will never return…

Because of the times you caressed my back
when I cried

Just watched Krzysztof Kieslowski’s Dekalog, episode four. These are the English subtitles from a key scene towards the end (it’s in Polish). Submitted by Gabriel Smy.
