So, I'm Letting Go

Tags: love, loss

I want you to understand,
that I don’t want to lose you,
but I just can’t keep holding on
to someone who doesn’t want to be held.

I’ve given everything I’ve had to give.
I’ve been patient and willing,
Kind and giving.
I’ve fought and I’ve forgiven.

You have touched my heart
like no one has ever.
I wish I could explain that but
I don’t understand it myself.

I know that you care
but I’ve noticed lately,
by your words, your actions
and especially the look in your eyes
that you could never really love me.

I love you with a feeling so strong,
I know now that, that you could never.

I’m not what you need.
I’m not what you want.
I know that there’s nothing
I can do or say to change that.

You must understand,
I don’t want to lose our friendship,
But my heart has got to let you go.
I have no choice,
I feel that’s what you want.

I know the hurt will be strong,
And I’ll miss you more than words can say.

So, I’m letting you go.

I wish you everything you’ve ever wanted
and hope you can find someone
to fill that space in your heart that I couldn’t.

Just always remember please,
That you will never be far from my mind
and you will always remain in my heart
