    Default Letting Go Is Never That Easy

    I let you go
    And yet I didn’t…

    We came into each other’s lives
    As strangers
    But some force pulled us together
    Like our combined gravity
    Overcame fear that comes with insecurity.

    There were good times
    And there were bad times,
    Laughter and pain,
    Happiness and tears
    Triumphs and lessons learned
    Dreams and crushing reality.

    And I was always there for you
    'Cause I could always hear
    The cries of your soul,
    See the tears in your heart,
    Feel your pain as if it were mine.
    And you were there for me
    At the moments when I broke
    And lost the strength
    To handle life on my own
    And we never kept score.

    But time is cruel
    And nothing remains the way it was
    Everything changes
    And the same was true of
    You and I
    And sometimes friendships
    Are just not meant to last,
    But I’ll be the first to admit
    I didn’t fight all that hard
    To hold onto the cord that tied us together.

    Part of me is sorry for that
    But see
    I have this aversion to conflict
    And I noticed the cracks
    Growing between us
    And I stared at that string that I’ve held tightly to
    As my heart ached
    But I was here,
    I played the part I was meant to,
    And holding on might sadly taint what we had.
    So reverently, I cut the thread
    And I let you go.

    But I still have this short piece
    Of coloured strand
    That I can’t bring myself
    To throw away
    And so, though I let you go,
    I tie this fiber around my heart
    And I hold onto you.

    We go our separate ways quietly
    But I find myself sparing moments
    Just to think of you
    Sometimes wondering if you ever remember me
    Or did your half of the strand
    Float away on the wind
    Because you didn’t hold onto it as tightly as I did.

    I miss you
    But I stood upon an invisible line
    And watched you leave
    Because I thought it best
    For both of us
    And I wished you the very best
    Knowing that I couldn’t
    Be there for you anymore
    And hoping someone else would be
    But also knowing that
    If you ever needed it
    I would still rush to your side
    If you asked.

    Because though I let you go,
    I didn’t.
    For me, friendship never truly dies
    It just gets put into the chest of things
    We treasure forever.
