I Have To Let You Go
Author: CD


I'm no longer the same, the same person you use to know.
Realizing this now, it's time, time now to let you go.
It saddens me so badly to see you're still the same.
Living your life so carelessly as if it were only a game.
The person I knew or thought I did, never existed at all.
I only hope God will be there, be there when you eventually fall.
I'm trying so hard to understand what's causing you so much pain and grief.
Any reasoning for what you're using, using for relief.
I know you're a good person, capable of love and so much more then this.
My dear friend it's so hard letting you go, you I will forever miss.
But understand I can't allow you to use or hurt me anymore,
a real friend wouldn't have done so.
That is why, why I have to now say goodbye,
I have to let you go.

I Have to Let You Go

This poem speaks volumes about love forlorn, betrayed. I feel like I'm experiencing this in my own marriage.
