What Love Can Mean

How can I let go of you, the one who holds my heart?
We loved being together; now we cry as we're apart.
I turn and look one last time, as I slowly walk away.
Holding out your hands, you quietly asked me to stay.
I gently touch your hands, as I whisper, "I must go,
You're forever in my heart, I hope you'll always know."
As we kiss one last time, it seems I'm lost in a dream,
For our good-bye has shown me what love can mean.
