About the Poem
Sometimes things in life are not always the way we would like for them to be. So we live our lives doing the things we are supposed to do and keeping a dream in our hearts that someday the dream that keeps us afloat will really come true.

|Do we realize the price
we would both have to pay
If our love became revealed
in the light of day?
My heart longs to be with you
it longs to be set free
To be released from the responsibilities I have
to be together . . . you and me.
Yet who we are dictates
it says what we must do
I know I must release you
to find someone new.
Please know I will always love you
it will be your memory that caresses my face
You are so much a part of me
you will never be erased.
So go in peace, my love
occasionally whisper my name
Always know I will come straight to you
should my circumstances ever change.
