About the Poem

I think one of the hardest tests of love is like the title says. Letting go is a true test of love. It is easy to hang on to the "safe" feeling of a relationship but true love at times, needs to be set free.

Well there is this woman who I met that I fell deeply in love with on a very soulful and spiritual plane. I love her she loves me, but we both are committed to others. it is sad that it is this way, but it is, and it is best, becasue I love her so much, to let go!

Loving You Enough To Say Good-bye

Why does love have to hurt?
Why can't love be easy?
Why do hearts have to break?
Just give me one good reason.

Why does love feel so strong?
These feelings that I feel.
This love that haunts my inner self.
Why is love so real?

I can not keep these feelings
All tangled up inside.
Oh God I love you so much.
I think I'm going to die.

My heart is beating one path
While my intellect another.
I know that way deep down within,
My mind and emotions struggle.

I want this love set free
But there is weight upon its wings.
Flying forward but standing still,
Held back by many things.

To let go now, it hurts.
With the time and effort gone.
I Just recognize no failure.
Only that my love was strong.

This poem really touched me and captured how I feel alot of times. It shows the reality of love and not just the happy smiley parts of it. This poem is real and says what needs to be said about love.

I loved this poem so much. I was just recently torn between mind and emotions. I had to make a choice and yet I love him more then my words can explain. It is so hard to say Good bye to love, especially when you don't want to.
Emily
I really think that this poem says it all. Everyone has so many unanswered questions about love. It's really confusing all in itself, but it can be a good thing too, if you let it be
