Do I Have To Let You Go? - Poem by Nancy L Cohen

I will never be able to see life any other way then the way I saw it with you.
Life is about decision and choices
Sometimes those decisions are the hardest ones you ever have to make.
Will my life go on and be good?
Yes because I choose that!
Will I ever be able to write and not think of you? No!
Will I ever be able to check my mail and not think of you? No!
Will I ever be able to look at my phone again and not think of you? No!
Will I ever be able to close my eyes and not think of you? One day.
To know that someone out there was my soul mate but won't be my life mate is heartbreaking..
Will this be painful? Yes
Will I cry daily over this? Yes
Do I believe this is the best decision? Yes
Will I doubt this? Yes every time I see him. Every time I hear music.
Every time I see fog. Every morning I wake up!
Will I ever have peace about this? One day because I know that he is living his life happily and I will live my life happily.
Would I have ever of known what beauty was without him? NO! ! !
Will I be weak some days? Yes!
The question was......Do I have to let you go?
The answer is yes..........
