Letting Go

When I was little you were my hero 
You gave me confidence when I had zero. 
For years I forgot how it felt to shine
But you were there to hold your hand in mine. 
Now our bond stretched too far
And my heart holds a permanent scar. 
You treat me like shit
But I held out and just put up with it. 
The past is gone, the future is near
I can't imagine life without you here. 
I hate how life has turned you cold
But I will always remember the stories you told. 
You were my life, my love, my very best friend
And now my world has come to an end. 
With this kiss I wish you well
And hope someone breaks open your shell. 
I'll always love you this much stays true
And I'll support everything that you do. 
I hope you enjoy your life alone
And live forever with a heart of stone.
