Fading

My love, can you please be the one to walk away? I'd like to make sure that you are gonna make a step forward. Cause I don't wanna hear that you were stuck in a place where I have left you. I wanna be the one to wave my hand and watch your back. Please… please don't look back.

Fading

 

To the love that once clear, thank you. Thank you for the laughter and dreams you’ve shared with me. Thank you for allowing my heart to rest and for showing me the wonders of maybe. The maybes that gave me some hope that someday, someone will stay. Thank you for opening my eyes to the beauty of possibilities. And for teaching me the strength of faith. Its a beautiful journey, indeed. Thank you for taking me into the heavens of love. And for allowing me to fly with you. We’ve walked and run some paths together. Caught in the fight of our own. We struggle together and celebrated victories while holding each other’s hand. I can’t deny… You.. You are one of my most beautiful memory. But all things have its end. And we’ve reached ours. As much as I’d like to stay, there is another quest waiting for us. And this time around, we’ve got to separate ways. It seems like we are some intersecting lines. We are meant to meet at some point but also separate afterward. It hurts but we got to be strong. So, come on… take this sword of our learnings and use it to your upcoming battle. Be brave my love. Be brave. My love, can you please be the one to walk away? I’d like to make sure that you are gonna make a step forward. Cause I don’t wanna hear that you were stuck in a place where I have left you. I wanna be the one to wave my hand and watch your back. Please… please don’t look back. Keep stepping forward. The step may be heavy but keep stepping. And I would be here, watching your image fades as well as the feelings we once shared.
