To Have Loved...

Last night lingered forever
And we were ending in its midst

I spoke
We divided
Now I quiver when I see her

Those looks that scream "Come stop me from leaving!"
And the words that were mouthed
Her face said betrayal and I can not stand myself when I see it
But I look at her every second
She hasn't left me

I've cried and wondered
Where are the imperfections now that I look back with 20/20 eyes?
Why has the world stopped?
What is there?
There is strength
And I must rely and remember
I love her and I must let her go

Sometimes letting go is the only thing you can do. Sometimes you have to learn from pain, and make something beautiful out of it. This was beautiful, Sam, but I'm sorry you had to write it.
