The Letting Go @Retrophaze

Topic - Forgiveness


How am I supposed to let you go when you aren't truly gone?


You are flesh and blood and only miles away, only hours away


How am I supposed to let you go when you aren't truly gone?


It feels like I kissed the lids of your closed eyes yesterday


How am I supposed to let you go when you aren't truly gone?


I can still feel us intertwined in your bed and I felt safe.


How am I supposed to let you go when you aren't truly gone?


When all I want is to hear your voice...and to be able to forgive you.


So I can let go.
