I’m afraid that I believe,
That I am not the one you need
And I’m afraid I have to say,
It’s time. It’s over.

As you stand before me now
I want to try, but don’t know how
I’m afraid there’s just no way
To stay. It’s over.

How can I look you in the eyes
Watch you grieve, then say goodbye?
When all you’re askings, for the chance
To start all over.

Let me hold you, in my arms
Pretend you’re mine, keep you from harm
It’s not so much to ask of me
To do it over.

So little time, we have to share
They’ll come a time when I’m not there
You’ll have to learn to be alone
Once it’s all over.

Please find the strength to let me go
You know it’s hard, I can’t say no
Don’t spend our lifetime letting go
Please say, it’s over.

  1. Realizing that it’s time to let go is your first step. Walk through the moments of understanding why you are letting go and show grace to the one that you walk away from. They may cling, they may get mad, they may walk away easily…know that there was a reason for knowing and loving the person you walk away from. Cherish that and that person. Love them regardless the fact that you can no longer stay.

    1. Thank you for your comment and insight. I really appreciate it! Hard to let go when you love someone…whether you are leaving or being left. Love can be painful.


    1. Hi! I appreciate being nominated, but I don’t participate in the wards anymore. They’re just too time-consuming and I have a lot going on. Thank you so much for thinking of me, though! It’s greatly appreciated. 🙂
