Let Go

A Poem Written in October, 2005 by Howard Ditkoff

In my door so long ago, you stood and looked at me
Not knowing for a moment how intense it all would be
We took it slow and let things grow but never did I ever know
That pretty face would one day place this burden on my soul

We walked among the lovely leaves, chased frogs along the streams
But now those leaves and flowing waters only haunt my dreams
That girl who chased the fireflies has left me with a love that dies
But maybe love has never really been quite what it seems

For once again I'm left to wonder if I'd only known
How soon it all would end and just how far I would be thrown
If I'd have spent just one more day, to play before it went away
If maybe I'd have planted one more seed that could have grown

But all that's left is missing, like the ground that held me still
And all the things I'm missing bring to someone else a thrill
I miss your smile, your pretty face, your deep brown eyes and warm embrace
And summer days that slipped away atop the grassy hill

But most of all I miss that child, the one you shared with me
The one that held such promise of the girl that you could be
I know that I still think you can, and though you're with another man
I think deep down I understand, despite my desperate plea

Each tear that falls is like the rain that poured down on our tent
Each heartbeat skipped reminds me of the love that came and went
And though I never thought you'd go, I wish you knew I loved you so
I wrote this cause I just don't know exactly how to let you go

How do I let go?
