The Art of Letting Go

This is a song by an artist named Mikaela. I've never heard of her. I don't know if any of you heard of this song or of the artist but I found it in one of my brother's folders. I was about to write another poem but it just wouldn't come out right. I heard this song and it really struck a chord in me. Somehow it was kinda like a sign. One of those days, I guess. I was thinking something up when suddenly I stumbled upon this song.

I searched the net for the lyrics and this is how the song goes.

~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~

Put away the pictures.
Put away the memories.
I put over and over
Through my tears
I've held them till I'm blind
They kept my hope alive
As if somehow that I'd keep you here
Once you believed in a love forever more
How do you leave it in a drawer?

Now here it comes, the hardest part of all
Unchain my heart that's holding on
How do I start to live my life alone?
Guess I'm just learning,
Learning the art of letting go.

Try to say it's over
Say the word goodbye.
But each time it catches in my throat
Your still here in me
And I can't set you free
So I hold on to what I wanted most
Maybe someday we'll be friend's forever more
Wish I could open up that door

Now here it comes, the hardest part of all
Unchain my heart that's holding on
How do I start to live my life alone?
Guess I'm just learning,
Learning the art of letting go

Watching us fade
What can I do?
But try to make it through
the pain of one more day
Without you

Where do I start, to live my life alone?
I guess I'm learning, only learning,
Learning the art of letting go.

I'm posting this song here so someday, after a long, long time, I will look back at this and remember how love comes and goes. I want this to remind me of how difficult it is to give in to emotion and just go blind to everything else.

You'll probably figure out who this song goes out to. This is how life goes on. For you, I'm letting you know that my emotions will set me free. My captor and my liberator. There will be no chains around my heart for you. Someday I will set myself free.
