How Do I Let You Go?

Poetry By: Spirit Of Freedom

My boyfriend was killed in a car accident some years ago. This deeply impacted my life and opened my heart and mind to life's unexpected realities. This poem reflects how I feel. I hope you enjoy reading it. All comments welcome :)

What will be, will be!
I know of this, first hand
Your life was taken away
So abruptly!
I will never forget that day
Till the day my body dies and I am with you again!
"How was I to prepare myself?"
With that kind of life changing event!
You didn't warn me
You were permanently leaving!
I hope you know how much "I love you"
Know, you will never be forgotten!
I don't know what has got into me
I feel you, inside me
I see images of your face
So clearly!
Am I crazy to believe in this, my love?
Are you still with me?
Is my imagination playing cruel tricks?
Running rampant?
As I talk with you
As if you were by my side, right now
In my heart and mind
Your face etched
Like a blue print
That never fades over time
Your foot prints still remain, next to me
As my heart beats eternally
Trying to make sense of everything!
Forgive me, my love
For being so strong in my feeling
For it has been a long time
Since I lost you, my friend
Something I haven't quite got over!
My heart has a mind of its own
Aching to be with you still
To see you
To smell you
To touch you
To taste you
One last time
So I can say "Goodbye"
Once and for all!
We brought the best and worst, out of each other
Rivers run deep
When it comes to you and me!
For we have had our fair share of fights and arguments
Stubborn disagreements
All of them, meaning nothing to me
Now, you cease to exist!
I miss your lingering touches
Your hand, stroking my face
Your big blue eyes, looking into mine
Your warm lips, your rough unshaven face
The way you passionately kiss me
While we make love till dawn
I miss all those nights
You kept me safe and warm
I miss your loving embrace
I miss your reassurance!
"Am I ever going to feel the same, with another?"
Just, as I felt in your arms, my love?
How do I let you go?
How do I set myself free?
I am ready to love, again!
With 'our eternal love'
Supporting and guiding me
Especially, in times like these!
