A Letter To Lillian - Poem by Rosemary Monahan

I wish you could let him go
and be in peace
I'm reminded every day
of how much he loves you
It doesn't bother me that
he thinks of you often.
I like to hear all the memories
of what you two shared.
But make the nightmares go away
They hurt him so much
Let the time come, Lillian, now
He will always love you, that I do know
And I hope some day
there will be a place in his heart for me
I want him to be happy with his life
And I pray that I can be a part of it
But I can't be if you don't let him go
Let him go, let him live his life
I promise you, he won't forget you
And some day I'm sure
You two will be together again
But not now, don't take him now
I love him and want him as mine.

(1998)
