Let you go

Its not easy to end this; its not easy to let you go,
But it is high time we realised that we both need to grow.
Along with us, an enormous part of me dies too,
A part that only you nurtured, a part that only you knew.
You shaped and moulded me and made me stronger every day,
And gave me the security that you would always stay
by my side, through it all, no matter what or who,
And despite what I threw your way, it was a promise you lived up to.
And thats why I love you, because how can I not?
For all the things you’ve done for me and all the times we’ve fought,
For all the long hours that we’ve spent on the phone,
For all the long drives, just you and me alone,
For all the gentle kisses and all the hugs so tight,
For all the deep discussions, telling the wrong from right,
For all the times you listened to me sing without complaining,
For all the movies I didn’t understand, and you didn’t get tired of explaining,
For all the experimenting and trying things we never thought we might,
For all the times we burst out laughing in the middle of a fight,
For all the times I shouted in public at you and you didn’t care,
For all the times that you didn’t shout but let me off with a glare,
For all the times you had to convince me that I was not terminally ill,
For all the times you didn’t have a choice but to take me to the hospital,
For all the times you never let me down when I put your love to test,
For all the times you told me it was okay sometimes to not be the best,
But most of all for just loving me and accepting me with open arms,
And in that special embrace you shielded me from all harm.
I don’t know if I’ll ever find someone like you after we part,
But I do know that you will always hold a special place in my heart.
And I know its not easy to end this; its not easy to let you go
But it is high time we realised that we both need to grow.
