Letting you go,
Was how much I loved you!
I couldn’t fight your freedom.
Your quest to explore
The adventures that life offered.
Because I wanted you to be happy.
Like a bird, I let you fly.
To unravel the mysteries
That lurks around you.
And I found solace
buried in your memories.
Daily, I hoped that when it hurts
And your adventure tastes sour
Maybe, You’d remember
I was waiting patiently
To take you back.
But you never did.
Maybe I shouldn’t have let you go!
