To really know

They say the only way to really know,
is to really let him go.
That's why I'm saying goodbye to you tonight,
because no longer can I put up a fight.
I used to be your number one,
but now she has you; she has won.
Forget our many lovely years,
ignore all of my painful tears.
This hurts me more than it hurts you,
Because unlike me, you have someone to turn to.
Someone to kiss you and hold you tight,
someone to help you through the night.
Someone to warm you from love's cold frost,
someone to guide you when you're lost.
Don't look at me like that, you knew this day had to come,
because a broken relationship like ours couldn't possibly go on.
Torn into pieces is my heart,
to finally meet the day we part.
Please, please don't begin to cry,
remember I love you even though I'm saying goodbye.

Such a beautiful poem. It really spoke to me and I can relate. Plus it's true.
