I’m sorry for chasing when you said no.
I’m sorry for being unable to let go.
It’s in my nature to fight for those
Who stood beside me as I faced foes.
Yet I cannot make or change your choice,
For you are free to express your voice.
The link that survived the initial flame
Has weakened in the cold silence of rain,
While cycles of disappointment and pain
Caused relentless heaving and unbearable strain.
Although the cord is not yet severed, I’ll let it fall slack,
For I recognize and accept that you aren’t coming back.
Despite the distance between us, I wish only the best,
For you on your journey through life’s endless tests.
I’m sure it’s mutual, this feeling of mine,
That our hopes for each other won’t fade over time.
The only thing I have left to offer isn’t much,
Just a simple saying, goodbye and good luck.
