You will haunt me all my days
Your essence etched in to my soul
As I bid you farewell
I absorb the pain of letting you go into the hope of freedom I have for you
I will love you all the days of my life and honour that which you have taught me.
I will carry with me all the love you have shown me and the world you have opened my eyes to
I will use the lessons you have gifted me to move forward in my life knowing that love does not own or possess or tie down, but encourages, nurtures and respects
That life is a sequence of miracles, opportunities and adventures;
To be curious and childlike, to be fearless and gentle.
To be unique and steadfast in honouring my dreams and who I am.
You have taught me to love freely, to dream big, to laugh loudly, to be passionately curious and to never give up on what I want no matter who says it’s impossible, no matter who says it isn’t “normal”.
You have been my lover, my friend, my challenger, my hero, my teacher.
Now it’s time for you to fly and become all you are destined to be.
And one day everyone else will understand that letting you go was the greatest gift of love I felt could give you.
