You learn to let people go


You learn to let people go
When they no longer need you in their lives
You learn to walk alone
When they no longer walk by your side

Beautiful are the moments
when you are together
But they aren’t touched
however hard you care
You learn not to care
When they don’t need you there
You learn not to bother
When they don’t want u near

They are precious to you
you might be important for them
But for everyone to grow
you need to empty your hands
You learn not to hold on to them
When they have walked far off
You learn not to chase them
When they don’t take you along
