Letting Go | A Poem by Felix Lugo

She deserves more than I could ever give her.
There was a time where we shared our love for each other.
I did not protect that love. I abandoned it. I lost her.
We had something special. Our love was pure. Innocent.
Somewhere inside me I knew what was the right thing to do.
Yet, I failed. I only thought for myself. I was selfish.
She gave me her trust. I took advantage. I was wrong.
All this time my true love was in front of me.
I blinded myself. I saw all but didn’t see her.
She waited and waited some more.
Through the years her love never faded.
There was hope in her heart.
My heart was empty.
She wanted to fill that hurt.
People say in time we eventually learn from our mistakes.
She will always be the one I failed to keep.
The one I let go.
When all this time she was just trying to build our home.
