Letting Go

All I want to do is finally let go

But a voice inside keeps telling me no.

I keep playing the sweet tune of your heart in my head.

But with the solemn joy comes pain instead.

I gave you my heart, I gave you my soul.

When you left came too a giant hole.

A hole inside longing to be filled up.

A hole that sits like an empty cup.

Filled up with your love, I could fly high.

Now an empty heart keeps making me cry.

I'm scared to look for I fear I won't find

Someone like you to give me peace of mind.

I'm holding on to what I hope is my fate

And I'm praying to God that you are my mate.

You're the only one who makes me happy inside.

But now from my emotions I am forced to hide.

How can I try to get over you?

When all I want is for you to love me too.

I hope inside for your sweet embrace

But I'd settle now for a smile upon your face.

I think of living without you for years

But the very thought only brings me to tears.

O how solemn to have loved and lost!

Losing you came with such an awful cost.

O to love how I yearn!

O of love what am I to learn?

Is love what made a thousand cries?

Or is love what I feel when I look into your eyes?

Why, O God, does she not love me?

Open her eyes so she can see,

See the love we share for thee.

O God, please say it was meant to be.
