Forgiven but not Forgotten

It was because I loved you, that I let you go

 

It was because I could not stand the aching pain

 

It was because the sacrifices I made were never good enough

 

It was because the hot tears constantly running down my cheeks meant nothing to you

 

It was because I could no longer feel free and at ease with you

 

It was because I could no longer call you my best friend

 

It was because you could not trust me

 

It was because you could not value me as a potential lifelong partner

 

It was because of the ignorance that took over your personality

 

It was because we could no longer have an honest conversation

 

It was because I felt numb without you that I could never let you go

 

I began to think, how could I ever live without you?

 

Till I began to imagine a life without all the misery that I had been living by

 

I saw what was best for us

 

I needed to let you go

 

To let you go finally set our souls free

 

It was not until then that I was overwhelmed with happiness

 

Thank you for showing me what I deserve

 

"Because I love you" was always your excuse to your wronging 

 

The words “I love you” will never be the same

 

Do not tell someone “I love you” just for the hell of it

 

Words are not enough

 

Express your love by valuing, respecting, trusting, and believing in the person

 

That is when you truly love someone

 

Words can only do so much
