I want you to go beyond

The noise

Of our thumping hearts

So that you can hear

Why I’m letting you go.

Believe me when I say

It’s not a choice

Between our love or your dreams.

I would never allow you 

To be tethered by the weight

Of your love for me. 

The world deserves to see

Your unbridled talent,

And my faith in you is such

That I realized from the start

That I should not 

Try to contain you. 

But know that 

Wherever you go

You shall never

Be left wanting

For you have 

My whole heart and soul.
