Closure to Rest

Give me some time to let this love go, 
To rid all the pain,
OH how it grows,
You’ve changed me forever,
I’ll never forget,
Your words of advice,
I gave much respect,
You helping me change,
And how not to forget,
I give all my thanks,
With no regrets 
Of how much I cared 
Don’t ever forget 
How strong my love was
Too strong for you yet
 Forever my love
And forever was it meant
Until you said never 
So nevers what you'll get
Yet forever in my heart
Is where this love sits 
As I feel like im stuck in a bottomless pit
Stuck am I not 
Just in a big mess
These feelings they kill
I just don’t want the stress 
Of this love that’s so strong
I now put it to rest 
To rid all my fears
Stuck inside of my chest 
Its closure I need
In order to rest 
I have now gotten it all 
Off of my chest
Thanks for your time 
And for holding your breath 
Now you should know of  this love in my chest

    What a wonderful way to sing healing to your soul. Your poem reminds me of a time when I felt pain of gloomy colors; yet it is well written, letting me feel your hurt. But all is never lost, we live and learn, courageously.
