Letting Go-

Letting go should be so easy…

Just close the door, turn around, walk away

Shut my eyes, say goodbye, and end the day.

 

Letting go is not so easy

It’s never to hear your voice again

Except sometimes at night.

It’s knowing that no matter what

I’ll never make it right.

 

Letting go takes time…

To convince myself that part of me

Is forever gone.

To really believe my life has changed

That I must now move on.

 

Letting go will come…

I will open up to a new direction 

Fully knowing the cost 

While the emptiness inside myself 

Reminds me of what I’ve lost.

 

Letting go is not disloyal…

I will never forget your life, or mine

Where you played a part

It will simply be a new beginning

That you will help me start.
