"If you love something, let it go..."
So begins a well-known phrase.
But how are you to let it go
When love means you never held it back?

For love is not about self,
Nor of what do I need.
It is supporting someone,
Being the cup for their mead.

So if you love something,
You can but watch it go --
And remember your love,
In case it returns.

--The Wandering Bard--
