To have loved and let go,
Is the greatest gift that I have ever known.
I did not die as I thought I would,
Neither did I bleed,
Or suffocated from the grief of forlorn memories,
Sure the heart shrunk and broke to a million pieces,
And time stretched to infinity,
Accompanied with tears that shed religiously day and night,
Though like the clear blue sky after a storm,
Smiles etched deeper by the day,
And the birds begun singing happier tunes.
As such, to have loved and let go,
Is the greatest gift that I have ever known,
For through dying,
Only did I truly discover the joy of living.
