Release to Renew
You are in everything I do, through
From the clothes I wear, and the
words I say.
I can't complain for I love you like
Captivated my dreams, it's you my
Can you still recall my touch, the
depths of our kiss,
The moments I swore that love was
made of this.
Miss you so, though I picked up and
had to start a new.
You're what was and I'm so glad
she's not you,
Trying to release your memory, so I
may be fair to her.
Her tenderness releases what
makes me bitter.
Her kisses melt away the pain you
She's all I need, something I've
learned with time.
Her words fill more true, the more
you fade away,
No convincing needed for she'll win
what you gave away.
So many wanted what you had, and
now I'm happy,
You're a memory I will let go, for I'm
no longer lonely.
I'm growing stronger a testament to
the gazes I catch,
My inner confidence awaken
because you hated that.
I don't care, that you'll never hear
this from me.
I've poured out my heart before still
you set me free.
Here's my new leaf and thanking
God for being blessed,
Here's to me and her, because I can
lay you to rest.
Cause she causes me to grin on the
inside, so see my smile,
You, I did love, but your love hasn't
been here for awhile.
