Letting Go

Lover of Fantasy, Poetry and Nature. Writer of Whatever pops in my head.

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

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.
