A Ditch Called Abandon

Sometimes it's as if I still 
don't know
That I have to let you go
As hard as parting the sea
So too shall this 
challenge me
Is it something I can do? 
Learn to just stop loving 
Learn to put myself first
In famine, flood and thirst
I've taken great joy in 
giving to you
I see now how little it has 
to do
With how someone can 
And place you far above
Any problem or desire
For eventually people tire
They move on
And leave you standing in 
your own abandon
