I Let You Go

Each of my songs
sung under the sun
of the magical guitar
has the imprints
of your love

Oh, I did love you
May be I still do
We’ve met in this life
and as a twin flame
I’ve recognized you

But since you have
some karmic debts
towards your own
your own kin,
the Lord has entrusted me
the most painful duty
the toughest task
– to let you go

With invisible tears
in my artistic heart
and an Amazonian smile
on my determined face
I let you go

My logic rarely fails
My intuition often wins
So in this life once again
I let you fly, dive
to your daily duties
to some unfulfilled
past lives’ karmas

Please complete
the practical circle
Leave no blanks
Skip no question marks

And once many cycles
of seasons for eons
are complete
then again, the Lord
himself will guide us
and with all his blessings
joyfully he’ll unite us.

    Poem filled with divine intervention in our lives and that letting go of everything is what life is. Great deep thought…
