Loving You

We made promises
We made sacrifices
And yet you couldn't stay by my side.
You went away
I knew you loved me but you left....
I cried myself to sleep every night
Thinking the pain would subside
but it never did
I wanted you back but I knew I couldn't have you
We were a part of a whole
That was never meant to be.
In the end I found the true meaning of love
To love someone is to let them go
It's to feel their warmth knowing that they are happy
It's to smile and let them be.
And if loving you gives me nothing
but dismay I'll gladly oblige.
After all not a single rose
exists without thorns.
