Letting go of a loved one is hard.
When that person is loved deeply,
letting that person out of your life is like tearing away a part of yourself.
The pain can be so intense as to debilitate a person.
But, the loved one has to be let go.
A future awaits her,
a new life.
She has taken the first step
towards her new, onward journey.
Heart has to be made strong
to bear the separation,
with a smile on the face.
Shed tears in private
that the loved one is going to make
a life of her own.
Revel in her achievements
and feel proud.
