About the Poem

When is love really love? When it's deep enough and strong enough to let go. She loves me enough to let me go . . . BUT . . . How can I let her do it?

How Could I Let You Go

You came softly into my life and touched my heart.
You brought joy into the depths of my being.
A joy I had never known before and so I ask,
How could I let you go?

Within me you have stirred the passions of dreams
And aroused the dreams of passion in the night.
You have brought new life to me and so I ask,
How could I let you go?

From deep within my soul you have touched the poet,
Brought words to life and feelings to the surface.
You are my verse, rhythm and rhyme and so I ask,
How could I let you go?

When love comes into a life as yours has come into mine,
The heart is surrendered and the soul is free to love.
The whole being is consumed in passion and so I ask,
How could I let you go?

I have heard your words and beheld your voice,
The softness and soothing nature calms my deepest fears.
You wrap me in your loving words and so I ask,
How could I let you go?

How could I let you go?
There is only one answer from this heart of mine,
There is only one solution to this puzzle within me,
I could let you go - - - - only into my heart forevermore.
