I Let You Go

I let you go
I let you go

I let you go

and along you, all our memories.

I believe you were a leaf

and me the branch.

I needed you,

you beautified me.

Today the earth needs you more.

You have lost strength to remain attached to me.

 

I let you go

to complete the cycle.

You will merge in earth

and may come to me again

through roots and trunk

to be born again

on my branch

dance and shine in love again

or may be not.

 

I let you go.

There are many leaves around

who look up to me.

There’s a call to love them all.

It’s hard,

I may not get one same like you

but wise men say love transcends all.

 

I let you go

to let the love float within me,

eternally.
