The Strength to Let Go
by Andrea Patricia-Ann Lee
I woke up this morning and said to myself,
"Today is the day you need to let go of
that something you don't have,
and put aside the false hope you currently thrive on."
I continued to go about my daily routine
with a few changes here & there,
not noticing the fact that you haven't even crossed my mind...
until you crossed my mind.
PLEASE... I need the strength to let go...
Let go of the feeling you give me
when we're in each other's presence...
Let go of the vision of unity between you and I
that haunts my dreams and taunts my reality...
Let go of the past that hinders my future.
A lot of decisions I made,
I based them around how you would see me
when in actuality you weren't even looking.
Now there's someone who's ready and willing
to take me where I want to be and give me
all that I could ask for...
and I don't even have the strength to let YOU go.
