How do I let go of you without losing a piece of me?
Every morning I get up and pretend that everything is normal
But my heart is fractured
And I keep the broken pieces pushed deep down inside
Then a song, a smell, a memory call the pieces forward
And without warning splinters pierce my eyes
And tears pour like hot rivers down my face
Everything I am is because of you
Who I am is intricately woven into who you were
Without you I am in turmoil
Fractures of my heart threaten to tear me to pieces
I push everyone away while I fight this grief
But I see the others waiting for me to come back
The ones you taught me how to love
The ones who love me because of who you made me
So how do I let go of you without losing a piece of me?
