And I held on. I held on so tightly.
But now, I think I need to let go.
It won't be so hard to do that, I know. I have seen how you've loosened your grasp, and I'm the only one left holding on.
Once I open my hands and set you free, I know I will regret nothing. I was there for you - always was. Fiercely loyal, passionately faithful. Perhaps that was my fault, in hindsight. But that's all in the past, and what matters now are the present and the future.
You have people who will take care of you and who you will care for. For that I am thankful. Treasure and cherish them like you once did me, because it would break my heart if you will ever feel alone. It was the one thing I tried my best to keep you from feeling. Did you notice?
Goodbye, darling. Thank you for the memories.
