Faith to Let Go

With every breath that passes my lips
My mind turns to you,
With every beat of my longing heart
Your name rings true.

You are so close I can feel your warmth,
And yet so far away,
I need you in my life even more
With every passing day.

I want to tell you how I feel
But the words won't come to me
I would fight for you with all I am
To hold on to this dream.

But I cannot hold you for myself alone
This much truth I know
It is your choice to be with me,
And I must have the faith to let go.



 ~you reached inside, you touched my heart,
and I am all the better for it~

Guys,
     The original title of this one was "Strength to let Go", but I got to thinking about it, and I think it has a lot more to do with Faith than strength.  Don't you?

It is with faith and strength, together, that we learn to let go~  
Nicely done, Terry~

TerryW~
It definitely takes faith.
Gaining strength comes after the
leap of faith.
Enjoyed.

Flowed as easy and smooth as butter. I love the simple wording.
