NaPoWriMo Poetry Challenge Day 3 “I Had to Let You Go”

Hi readers, I’m back for Day 3 of the National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo/GloPoWriMo) poetry challenge.

I’m a bit behind so I’m playing catch-up. 🙂

**For those who don’t know what NaPoWriMo is:

As usual, here is the prompt for today: “…I’d like to challenge you to write an elegy – a poem that mourns or honors someone dead or something gone by. ”

“I let You Go”

It was so sad knowing that

I had to say good-bye to you.

You were with me for a long time; twelve years.

Where does the time go?

I remember the very beginning; watching you grow and change

over the years.

You were with me…

my constant companion.

There were days when you annoyed me and

I just couldn’t get you to do right

by me…but

those days were few.

Mostly, you were my companion,

a reflection

of my personality and

at times

even my security blanket.

But, as life goes

sometimes we go through evolutions

that require a rebirth,

a discarding of the familiar

and an embracing of change and “newness”.

So, I had to let you go; say good-bye.

But I just wanted to let you know that I enjoyed our time together

and perhaps one day

we’ll meet again.
