with each moment

my heart is less and less wrapped around yours

I find myself freer and freer

from that ties that bind

my heart is a little brighter

my step a little lighter

free from you

not looking back

at many years gone by

and many things thrown away

one pearl of wisdom is worth it all

there is no worth greater than the worth one finds in himself

and the path away from you

has been the path back to myself

and so leaving you behind with the person I never was

swaying now, with the breeze, open hearted

lighthearted without you

there is no goodbye, you were not you

and I was not me

I only greet myself

anew every morning as the sun rises
