    The hardest thing to do
    Is to give up who you love
    Yet I dare not stand in the way
    The way of your dreams
    That does not include me

    Two different worlds
    That briefly became one
    We knew it was only a matter of time
    You say it doesn’t matter
    You wish to be with me
    But what about
    The dream

    The dream that you’ve held in your heart
    For so many years
    A dream that motivated you all of your life
    You can’t give that up
    Not even for me
    I love you too much
    To take that away from you

    But instead I’ll steal the memories
    Keep them in my heart
    Replay them
    In the middle of the night
    When I’m lonely
    And tears fall
    I’ll revisit them
    When I smell the faint scent
    Of your perfume
    Permanently infused in the sheets
    It’s because I love you
    That I sacrifice my happiness for you
    You’ve touched my heart in a way I never knew
    Renewed my strength

    Go live your dream
    For you have given me mine
    Maybe in another place and time
    We shall meet again
    Who knows?
    Let this final kiss etch its image into my soul
    Let this final embrace consume my very being
    Tears fall from my eyes
    Symbolic of my heart melting
    Becoming fluid
    Evaporating into nothingness
    Passion fire ceases
    Love has gone
    And I die.

    True love is loving someone enough to let them go ...............:heart:

    to be the one that you have loved
    is the dream I dream each night
