let it burn, suffering teaches the soul; let it grow, love nourishes the heart.

I love you enough to let you go,
One day you will understand, I know,
For now venture into the world,
Learn all you can, become unfurled,
The things that hurt you, teach you,
Leave me behind, for years that flew,
To let you go, hurts so dam bad,
It breaks my heart, leaves me sad,
But you need to know, to be sure,
Because you don't know what's pure,
You haven't beenout there haven't learned,
Your heart is whole, not yet burned,
Take a few years, to learn much truth,
Leave behind the innocence of your youth,
Grow with the world, get to know it well,
If you still love me, rescue me from my hell.

The author's comments:
To love someone, truly love them, and let them go willing, is something that takes strength, true strength. It's not easy, it hurts the deepest fibers of my being, but I must not chain one who doesn't understand what love really is, when I know full well what it is, I would never forgive myself for such an act.
