Have to let go...

by Matthew Schut

This is the last night that I will
Let myself cry over you
It's time to move on with my life
Even though I really don't want to

Although I can't see you tonight
In my heart I have to say goodbye
When I wake up tomorrow
I will not let myself cry

I've held onto you for so long
You were the one that made me complete
I seen myself marrying you
The sight of you made my heart beat

When you call tomorrow
I will have to push ignore
I can't go on like this
Wishing that we were more

I love you with all of my heart
I really wish it wasn't so
I can't see myself without you
But I have to let you go...

Once again, amazing poem. I'm going through a similar situation, so I really am glad that I found this.

Keep it up.

These felt like simple words
wow, you described perfectly the conversation someone has with themselves when they decide that it is best for them to let someone go, such a hard thing to do..
seemed like a nice yet effertless piece :]
