Let Me Go
We laughed in the sun and played in the sea,
I needed you and you needed me.
Please don’t let our best memories bring you sadness,
We helped each other through the pain and madness.
Through the times when each our parents would fight,
We could run to the sea and let our hearts take flight.
With wind in our hair on those rocks,
The sea spray would kiss your golden locks.
But don’t take it all so personally now,
Everything is transitory and has to move on somehow.
Even back then I was too old in the head for you,
But I put it aside for the beauty of friendship so free and new.
But the time came sooner for me than I thought,
I tried to put it off, oh boy I fought.
I knew I needed to have time for me in the singular way,
And for you to understand I’d hope and pray.
I’m a big girl now, the gap is too great,
We must face the world separately and accept our fate.
This road I have to travel alone,
Perhaps you will understand one day when you too have grown.
I think of us still and the great times we had,
But I remember with gladness not with sad.
So please dear friend let me go,
There are great times waiting to greet you, of this I know.

Well, all my life she has told me she’s good at commissions, so I decided to put her to the test! And she passed with flying colours 😀 Friends, I give you another poem from my mother!
It’s about someone I spent the majority of my childhood with, and loved very much. The breakup was pretty painful in the end, and we have a very shaky friendship. I wish it wasn’t that way, but that’s how it turned out. Maybe one day we can be good friends again 🙂
As a nod to my mother’s commission skills, I’m going to link a poem that I wrote about the same person 😀 you can find it here.
Thanks for reading, guys! ^ ^
