Inescapable saddening truths

Never wanted to hurt you
Interrupt all your dreams
You see, my love
Your happiness meant everything
In my mind
I always see your face
Gave you wings to fly
Only with true love could I give you your space
Words, line and verse
Our chapter closed
Your life story remains
But my love unchanged
Path chosen
Though you may not understand
Leaves words unspoken
Your absence, hard to withstand
Many think it selfish
Taking love away
But, love is selfless
You’ll understand, I stood not in your way
