To love is to let go


To love is to let go

And yet, to love is to want with all your heart

The one person, to complete you

Funny, how it can mean sharing their joy

And basking in their excitement

While feeling bereaved

Oh that bittersweet twitch that is love

To love is to let go

But how can I tell my heart

The one who fills it with sunshine

Needs to be free, to be the sun

That two free birds

Are meant to be apart

To love is to let go

While the opposites reconcile

Great joy at their happiness

And deep sorrow at your loss

The need to be one, together

And to be one, alone,

Selfless. And selfish

To love is to let go

Watch them run to you

And also step away

With their back to you

Let go

No matter how hard
