I am losing him

He is leaving me.
He is walking away from me.
He is becoming a memory day after day.
He is just becoming a stranger now.

I don’t want to keep him.
I don’t want to get rid of him.
I cannot do anything about it.
I can just be.

You were smart.
You were strong.
You were independent.
You were resilient.
You were a warrior.
You were admirable.
You were beautiful in your own way.

I am grateful for all you did.
I thank you for being part of the journey.
I will always respect and honour you.
I love you.
