Because I Love You, I Shall Set You Free

Dear Love;
You have been my most precious inspiration in life, and I had aspirations of one day making you my wife. I have seen the smile on your face when children play, but I have also notice the urge in you to get up and walk away. Seems like you embrace the thought of children playing in the park, yet you seem to change when the fear of raising children frightens you in the dark. My respect for you tells me you are not ready to settle down and cherish motherhood, it’s a hidden fact that inside of you I’ve come to know and it’s widely understood.
It has been wonderful walking hand in hand along the way down the city streets, and it is obvious that you enjoy the youthful smiles of all the people you have come to meet. Even when I visit you at your apartment I see signs of people that once were there, and when I question the clothes left behind you tell me to look the other way if I really care. In order not to argue I smile and I place my arms around your waist, then I kissed your global lips until the lip stick I have finally come to taste.
We often go out to enjoy a movie, or the sport of ten pins that we know as bowling, only to pretend to not see you walk away for long periods because you don’t like me asking where you are going. When you come back you make me feel so good inside of me with so tender words of love and your beautiful green eyes that stare, and it makes me melt like butter and to ask about your disappearance I can no longer dare.
I care so much about you, but I think that perhaps my more mature ways don’t seem to catch your heart enough to change, I do so much to keep in shape thinking that the gap of years would not make us as a couple look so far apart and strange. When we first meet you seemed like you understood that our different lives would not change the love that we felt for each other, but it seems that I must set you free because I love you and I have been just a bother.
Someday I will find someone who will love me for just the person that I am, just like two slices of bread with peanut better and some strawberry jam. The outside of a treat is what keeps the inside taste of a love so sweet until the very last bite is taken, and the memory of something so good is left inside and not forsaken. Please understand that you deserve a life that you need to feel comfortable with everyday, however something has gone wrong when you no longer ask me the night to stay.
I bit you fair well for the times you brought me a million smiles, but that has gone in another direction and I have not seen that happiness for quite a long while. Knowing that I love you so much makes it hard to say again for the last time, so I have to release you because to keep my honest love for you in chains would be a terrible crime. Here’s hoping you will see my faithful intend to part ways because I love you so much, but its like the seasons that change for the better of living things and such.

Loving you foreverYou’re Loving Man
