I saw you walking yesterday
The sun setting on your back
And as you ventured on your way
I noticed a lightness to your step
A happiness to your demeanor
Your strides were long and true
Not seeing where you were going
Or who you were walking to
Then I realized the reason there
As you both came walking back
Her long dark hair that framed her face
Her smile, is what I lack
And suddenly I realized
My love I must let go
You have moved on, through with bitter tears
My dear I must let go
Alone am I, Through tear stained glass
Retreating in my mind
A sweeter place without you here
New memories I must find
No prequels yet. Why not write one?
No sequels yet. Why not write one?

I love the last line. It shows a level of resilience that I admire in the character. Nice job. :)

Loss and acceptance are a funny pair. You'd think they wouldn't mesh but, in this, they did. Well done.

It was flowing well until "You have moved on, through with bitter tears". This line caused me to stop and the rest is choppy in its flow. Love the images and the emotion caught here.
