Trying To Let Go
Author: Brett


A picture of your face stays in mind,
It's the only memory of you I can't leave behind..
What you did was impossible to bear,
But it seems time for me to face my fears..
I can't let what you did keep me from saying my thoughts,
Remembering the other side, the happiness you brought..
But for too long I tried to avoid the inevitable,
Our friendship broken that was once inseperable..
Yet why are you still with me everywhere I go?
Your face, your smile, it just makes my emotions show..
I cry sometimes because I miss you so much,
My tears are symbols of how I miss just your touch..
But if I allowed you back into my life,
New tears would form, it simply wouldn't be right..
Despite it feels that part of my heart and soul are gone,
I know somehow that the rest of me will live on..

------- Author's Notes -------

This is a poem about one of my closest friends. I still love her to death, but I don't think we can be friends.
Cherish the true friends and family you have!

Been down this road

It can be hard to let another go,
In my mind she apears with an invite,
Thought we'd be together til the end,
life had a different path for us both to find,
Brett you're poem is great, I can totally relate,
hanng on in there time does make a difference but she will remain in you're thoughts.

Yeah, I hate it when that happens..... When friendship is lost, I try desperately to find it.... haha..... Sometimes, when some people get a certain age, they tend to change, I don't know why though....LOL!

Great poem Brett!
Keep on writing
