Letting Go

“Smile for me,” you said, just moments
Before telling me it’s time for you to go
“Remember me,” you said, as though the
Yesterday we shared was so far from tomorrow

And I’ve lied to myself
And I’ve justified my truths
And I’ve convinced myself my life
Was made for holding on to you
If it’s time for you to leave
I wanted you to know
I’m letting go

Forgive me if I sound bitter;
I don’t mean to take the drama from your
Well-rehearsed soliloquy
Save your speech; I don’t need a demonstration
Of what you consider honesty

Lie for me
And I’ll hold your hands pretending I believe
Cry for me
And I’ll keep it all together till you leave
