I said to them
"You don't need me..."
"You just think you do."
And with these words
I let them go.
Some days I am enough for myself.
And I have miles yet to go.
Its been a long hard winter.
I trudged the miles mostly on my own.
Its not as if I didn't ask.
They were met with not even a care or a groan.
Nor kind words found in a simple letter.
I knew I could do much better
And with those words
I told them
with straight-through-the-front-door conviction:
"I let you go."
