Because (poem)

Updated on June 14, 2015

Her happiness my only goal

She was my life she was my soul

Yet in the end I let her go

It was because I loved her so


A touch of heaven by my side

With our tomorrows open wide

But in the end all this must go

It was because I loved her so


I loved her so the stars would shine

And with each kiss a dream would dine

With every breath I loved her so

Yet in the end that too would go


I loved her so each memory

Became special part of me

Reminding me I loved her so

In case I had to let her go


It doesn’t really matter why

No teardrop reasons why we die

But when the moon has lost its glow

Perhaps it’s best that we should go


Now we still meet each now and then

And pass along remember when

But when it’s time for us to go

It was because I love her so

      O, letting go because of a true gift of love. It is being willing to make the hard choice for the right reason.

      Hoping all is good with you.

      Mh, yes, that is a true love to not attempt to cling onto someone when we really need to let them go ... letting go has to be one of the hardest things in this life to do for sure.


      Up and more and away

      There comes a time when letting go is the only thing to do, but it's certainly not easy. Your poem describes it so well.

      Martin, a love that lets is the most challenging and unselfish love. You describe it so well.

      Martin, it takes a big heart to let someone they love go. This is a very poignant look at faded love.
