    I have loved you longer than any man in my whole, entire life.
    You have been my confidant and my best friend…you cut through my soul like a knife.
    I have longed for you and loved you deeper than words could ever show.
    But the time has come for me to admit that I have to let you go.

    My favorite thought, memory, joke and conversation are all bottled up in you.
    I can barely go about the tasks of my day ‘cause you are in everything that I do.
    Never did I think for one moment that I would have to forego…
    how much I truly love you but I have to let you go.

    How could I be so naïve all these years?
    I suppressed and displaced all my tears.
    Denial was my truth but now the secret is out.
    Not one day has gone by that I did not wish that we had been more than friends throughout.
    My whole existence has been spent loving you but now I really know…
    longing for you is not healthy for my heart so I have to let you go.

    If there has been one lesson that I have learned from this…
    It is to never again let my fears handicap my ability…
    to love who I love because this decision is tougher than anything I will ever experience. It’s so!
    Never in my life will there be anything more painful than finding you, kissing you, loving you, wanting you, needing you and letting you go!

    Hi HopelisRomantic
    I enjoyed reading your whole poem
    The one part that set deep in me were these lines.
    Sigh! I could feel the hurt, it touched my heart.
    Love is so wonderful, letting go is so hard.
    So true my sister. Flow on .

    Peace~N~Love

    When yiou love someone so deeply that they become the fabric in you, letting them go, feels like we are abandoning a part of oursleves. But sometimes, we must. The pain in this was so deeply felt, quite an emotive write.

    Yes letting go of a love especially one you have loved for so long is very hard. But sometime neccesary to get on with your life. Wonderful write.
