let go

let go by Phil Burns

let go by Phil Burns

the pain is when you love someone
and she loves you too you know
that there is still a spark deep in both hearts
yet you have to let it go

sometimes this life is just too hard
you wonder if you’ll ever grow
or hang on forever to the hurt
when you have to let it go

you think you have moved on at last
you think you’re free although
the chain is still around your soul
and you have to let it go

you travel far you try to hide
you pretend it doesn’t show
but inside you’re still breaking up
you can’t ever let her go

  3. These words really spoke out to me and I can relate. I don’t know if I will ever completely let him go even though I know it’s what needs to be done. Thanks for the post 🙂

    On my inspiration yesterday, I said that sometimes it takes great strength to let go / give up. You have just proved the point that I was saying there.

    A most excellent post M. Pachyderme

  6. Oh I have felt that pain. I knew I had no choice but to walk away. She made the choice for me; But I know I shall never love like that again. The pieces may lie shattered on the floor but they are my pieces and they mean something to me if to nobody else.
