    I have a poem

    Letting Go

    by Judy Burnette

    How do you walk away from someone you love

    And take the road of friend;

    Can you reroute the course you have taken

    And start over once again?

    I don't really want to let you go

    But inside me I know I must;

    The times we've loved . . . the times you've left

    My heart says stay . . . but it's my mind I must trust.

    We have shared so much together

    Laughter . . . fun times . . . tears;

    Yet sometimes we can't turn back time

    We must walk away, and allow ourselves to heal.

    I know one day you will be happy

    And your soulmate you will find;

    I know we each have one out there

    Even if for now . . . only in our minds.

    May life be gentle with you

    May God's best come your way;

    And on some quiet tomorrow

    You will realize things were better this way.
