Time To Let Go:
I didn't want to believe it,
It couldn't be you.
They must mean someone else who has the same name.
No it wasn't you who was dead.
But I knew I was lying to myself,
You were gone forever
And I was still here.
The tears that I cried
Felt so foreign
And the pain I felt so raw
I can't even begin to describe
The way those three words
"Killed in action"
Broke my heart more than others ever could.
For years people told me it was time to move on
But I knew that I couldn't.
It wasn't until I attended a church service,
It was your favorite,
That I knew I was holding on to the memories
And I realized that is was
Time to let go,
Because you hadn't really left me
You would always be there, in my heart.
