Selfish Secret

It was not mine to give away
Even though I wanted it to stay
This selfish secret of my heart
Shouldn’t have been from the start

There were worlds in between
And I pretended it was serene
Nothing would bring us together
Not there was any happily ever

But I was stingy in holding onto you
Thinking we can create a life new
I was silly to presume that’d be
For beyond my own I couldn’t see

It dawned on me like an epiphany
That I was wrong on so many
From your fate I must be removed
You are meant for the greater good

Letting go was not so easy
My mind was tumultuously breezy
Yet I had to do what I always knew
That I’d lose it all saying bye to you

Just like everything, life moves on
It’s been hard but I’m not alone
Knowing you are inspiring out there
I too am making my mark somewhere

(Now read from the bottom!)
