Farewell

If you love someone,

clinging onto him or her,

grasping him or her,

demonstrates only your

inadequacy.

If you love someone,

free him, free her.

Granted the choice to leave,

the choice to return is also granted.

Upon his or her return,

love is returned, love confirmed.

Those who leave, and do not return,

may still have your love,

but you never had theirs.
