Goodbye My Lover

I love you for all that you have ever been to me,

For sharing whatever part of yourself you were able to share,

For loving me as much as ever you could, and knowing that this was not enough.

I love you for teaching me so much about myself,

My strengths and weaknesses, my dreams and desires.

Thank you for taking my hand and walking me into adulthood,

For taking me to a place where I am now wholly responsible for myself.

Thank you for your belief and friendship.

I love you for who you are - all of you, even the you that I will never get to know.

You have known all of me and taught me to know myself.

I miss you daily yet thank you for setting me free,

Free to be loved as entirely as I have loved you.
