It had been too long since she had seen him,

But he showed up at her doorstep that day. 

He held a bouquet of hand picked flowers,

And had to fight the urge to stay. 

He saw what was right for her, and decided it be best he walked away. 

What he didn’t understand, or frankly didn’t know, 

Was that she loved him so long ago,

And it still lingers on, to this day. 

But all he was there to say,

Though it tears her apart everyday,


“I have to let you go...”

“...I have to walk away.”
