Dear friend

Dear friend, There’s a sadness, when, you have to face a future without the one you planned Someone asking” How are you?” with grace And you answer”, Fine I swear, grand” Looked into your eyes; see the struggle piled Trying to fake a smile and then saying I will get through this, it may take awhile I understand the pain; praying But you feel the pain is yours, alone to keep Why do we hang onto something that we know we’re better off letting go of; pain seeps Scared to lose something that’s not ours; let go So, we torture ourselves slowly, listening to songs that make you cry. Over thinking situations we cannot change, even if we long Reliving moments that we can never touch again You have to control your own self, my friend I know you want to contact them, to tell them you love them and miss them; love send How you want to work things out, not to end But it’s better leaving things in the past Let go and cut all communication with them Sometimes, that is the only way to move on Is by Breaking your own heart, my friend. J.E.
