Once upon a dream, you were heaven-sent to me, but it wasn't meant to be. Now I see it fade, and I'm here all alone.

Letting go of that hand that I've grown so accustomed to holding, letting go of that warmth can be so hard. Not holding on to your arm that was there to protect and embrace me, not seeing your smile, has been quite sad.

There was bound to come a time when I had to find my way. The time has come when I must let you go. I will be moving on with my life, on my own.

You will always be with me; I will always need your love, but it's so hard not to have you around. But now it's time to letting go.

When I look back, I will recall, minute by minute, our greatest moments of them all. Not a day goes by that I do not think of you. Your photograph is still next to my bed, and when the lights go out at night, you are part of my thoughts, love and soul. It's been quite a year, and I still loving you... Miguel, "The Widow Hall"[2]
