Love demands

So often love demands

release, a letting go

of those, we hold within

our hearts and minds,

and yet who cannot stay,

in ways they did before

a time, when life and

soul decreed, that they

must walk alone awhile;

that we’re not what

they need.  There is

no holding on to that,

which must stand full

apart, and do the work

demanded; pursue

their own bright star.

It hurts to loosen ties

of love, the pain is deep

and dark, and yet there

is no other way – they

have their own true path.
