Sometimes in life if we truly love something or someone, we have to let them go and set them free. At times in our life, we may have a special someone in our heart who brings a smile to our face each time we think about them. But at times in life, things don't always work out the way that we'd hope and that includes relationships and even friendships. It's hard to let go of someone who you love, but as the German Poet Herman Hesse once said, "Some of us think holding on makes us strong; but sometimes it is letting go."

Shakespeare once said that "parting is such sweet sorrow,"

And the man of great words was right,

Because the thought of letting you go my darling,

Is like I'm losing my guiding light.

 

You gave me such hope,

You showed me love that no other lady did,

I felt the chambers of my heart cry so much with joy,

'Twas like I was once again a kid.

 

Your love opened up a part of me,

That no-one else had ever done,

You were the one I always thought of,

You were my happiness, my rising sun.

 

I always remember our time together,

Those nights that we did share,

Never will I forget those memories,

For you I will always care.

 

When I was in your presence,

Your wonderful smile warmed my heart,

I never wanted to leave your side,

I always wished that we'd never be apart.

 

Something within my soul,

Told me you were the one,

My heart longed for you to be by my side darling,

I know with you, we'd always have fun.

 

But having time to think,

Alone with my inside voice,

I've come to realise,

That maybe being together isn't the best choice.

 

Maybe it was a phase,

Maybe it was just all in my head,

Maybe it was my error,

Maybe it was the signs I'd misread.

 

But it felt so true,

Things just seemed so perfect,

There was an aura of such love,

And we'd just instantly connect.

 

But some things aren't meant to be,

Sometimes it is this we just have to accept,

But no matter what happens in life my sweetheart,

You will always have my respect.

 

You've shown me what love feels like,

To be with someone who means a lot,

Someone who is beautiful,

Someone who judges not.

 

They say that if you truly love someone,

Sometimes we have to let them go,

This is so tough for me to do,

But I know this way, we can both truly grow.

 

To me you have been kind,

You've showed me a different part of life,

One that I am forever grateful for,

Those memories I shall hold forever tight.

 

And so I'm doing what I feel right,

I want you to be free,

To enjoy your life and let your soul soar,

But whatever happens... I shall always remember thee.
