Letting Go

     Joyce Burns


Time has a way

of making us see,

that though we may

want it,

its not meant to be.


Love lasts forever

is mostly

a myth.

One can lose site

with a touch

and a kiss.


Our play

it has ended,

as I close the door.

I turn out the light

and wish there was more.


But life

keeps on spinning,

and one day you’ll see …

the best way to love you,

Is to let you be
