    she wants me to swim after her, but why bother?
    Shes been on my boat for too long, its time for her to test the waters
    she needs to learn that there is more fish in the sea
    but if she's my true love, then those waves will bring her back to me
    but i know that wont happen, she'll get lost out there in the sea weed
    its time to face it, we were made differently, cut from different creed
    She wants to yell @ me and frankly I dont blame her
    But us getting back together will not form out of anger
    So Im letting her go without pain or regret
    I feel thats the only way I can walk away with the same kind of respect
    I cant be sorry cuz I knew what I was doing
    I knew what it could be and who I could be using
    I knowing dealing with my sh*t didnt come easy
    maybe thats why Im not vexed if she does decide to leave me
    All I can do is shake my head and smile
    Cuz looking back @ it, she did make this voyage worth my while

    One of the hardest things to do in life is to make tough decisions and live with them. Honesty! You are learning quickly, proud of you! Sounds like Franchesca will need you as a friend, be there for her, Peace!
