Release to Renew

You are in everything I do, through 
every day,
From the clothes I wear, and the 
words I say.
I can't complain for I love you like 
no other,
Captivated my dreams, it's you my 
gorgeous lover.
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 
left behind,
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.
