Letting Go

sipping coffee
on a rainy Wednesday…
mulled over your words…
and you were right
i am getting there, and
i didn’t realize i’ve come so far…

slowly i’ve come to  realize
that you’re no longer
the same person
i fell in love with…
no longer the same
person i gave my heart to…
and the love which
i had for you has also
transformed
into a different kind…
no longer the same passionate,
romantic love…
it’s more platonic…familial…

yes i still think of you
though no longer in the same
way i used to…
your thoughts no longer
consume my hours…
and the sadness…and the pain
i used to feel when
i come across
a memory of you and me
has slowly ebbed…
my voice no longer breaks
when i talk about you
and the events of April 25th…

slowly i’ve come to understand
that i am now only
a part of your past;
you are part of mine –
and we are now
only yesterday’s feelings…
i guess i’m choosing
to leave the pieces of what we had
as they are – broken…

i’m letting go now –
your hands are no longer
mine to hold…
and the spaces
in between your fingers
are no longer mine to fill…
