“Only know you love her, when you let her go”…

Todays words, picture and song choice come from my wonderful guest writer Sal…


“Let her go”

He had known for a while
Known there was something wrong
Known she was changing
Before his very eyes
He had watched her
As she began to wilt
Her light began to fade

Gone was the happy spirit
He had fallen in love with
Now she was just a shadow
Of her former self
A ghost
That walked amongst
The living

He had taken her away
To his house in the county
Hoping she would
Once again find herself
But she continued
To disappear
Before his eyes

Now he stood watching her
As the thunder rolled
Watched her as she began
To dance to nature’s wild concerto
Seeing the light
In her eyes
Begin to reignite

He knew then
Knew he couldn’t tame her spirit
Couldn’t continue to cage her
Knew he had to open the doors
And set her free
Walking out into the rain
He stopped her dance

In her hand he placed the key
To the collar she wore
Caressing her cheek as he whispered
“It’s time to let you go
My little bird
Go fly free
Be the woman you are meant to be”

Her tears joined the rain
As she kissed his lips
One final time
She didn’t argue
Didn’t fight
She knew herself that the time
Was right

He watched as she turned
And walked away
All around the storm did rage
Falling to his knees
As a torrent of emotion and pain
Escaped from his body
The pain he felt would always be there

But he knew he loved her enough

To let her go…
