   How is it in me to just walk away ?
 Where do I find the strength ?
How do I just let go of what my world revolves around ?
When every intake of breath is her exhale.
When the start of every one of my heart  beats is 
finished by hers.
When all of my waking thoughts and dreams are of her.
Do people still believe in a soulmate ? 
I know they exist , for I have found mine.
So how do I walk away,I have to,for my dreams are held
by another

    very sad, but, even though it seems unfair we have to do what is best for us and what fits in our lives. A thought provoking piece Jim, nicely done!
