"I dont really know what I am doing anymore.

The news of your departure left my heart on the floor.

I have never loved like I love with you.

I can assuredly assume you felt it too.

We are at times in life where love is hard.

Only recently did we both let down our guard.

We spent multiple hours laying together by the shore.

You accept me as is like no one has before.

I love you for you and you love me for me.

But our love can not float all the way across the sea.

We started this thing with no intention of falling.

And now all I can do is continue my stalling.

I don't want you to leave, but I know you must go.

Your happiness is something I could never tell "no."

We were apart for a while and that was quite the task.

I wish you would stay this time but I know I can't ask.

You have your life and I have my own.

After this tragedy we will both have grown.

I know we both are still in our prime.

But this feeling I get with you is once in a lifetime.

You make me a better person, this I know for sure.

Many things I got through because you allowed me to endure.

No words can ever express what I feel on the inside.

Our lives have interfered in our love taking it's strides.

But just know this, I will always hold you dear.

All of my feelings are genuine, not one insincere.

As this comes to a close I can only ask one thing.

Remember how good we were to lessen the sting.

If you ever find yourself near where I can be found,

know that I still love you, my heart knows no bounds.

(Relax, breathe, and enjoy the moment you are in)
