Letting You Go

I know I have to face the day
when my mornings will not be as sweet,
when I'll wake up and feel
like something is missing and nothing is there,
when you will be waking up next to someone else
who isn't me.
Every day I fear this morning is getting closer.

Every night I fall asleep,
I sleep in hopes of dreaming
that everything would be like it was before,
but I can't get that chance
because reality will not leave me alone.

I will always have to confess one thing:
nothing scares me more than losing the person
I have always had by my side.
At night I'll feel so alone and lost without you,
and maybe you'll be lonesome too

I know I'm being selfish
for wanting something I can't have forever,
but I will always feel in my heart and in my soul
that you belong to me,
no matter the distance, no matter the place, no matter the time.

My mornings are getting colder,
my nights are getting restless.
I will never stop thinking about the day I'll have to say it,
the day I'll have to say goodbye.

That day is getting closer,
the day I've been wishing never to come,
the day of your departure.
I'll watch helplessly as you turn around to leave.
A part of me will die the day I'll let you go.

I met someone whom I really admired, and I loved her like my own older sister already. We were close before but now for some reasons she has changed. Love this poem so much, it really describes my relationship with her. Thanks for the poem.

Amazing Poem!
I love it! It sounds just like me and my sister!
her boyfriend is going to propose any day and I'm really scared, for the day I have to see her go! I love her, and don't want her to leave me!!!!

3 years in a row I have had to move schools because of different foster placements. And the people I met during those years touched me and I grew magnificent bonds with them. Letting them slip past me and having to say good bye to them was the hardest thing I have ever had to do. The saddest thing is I have just done it again 3 days ago
