I stepped back
Not because i had given up
But becaused i loved you so much
And staying meant standing in the way of opportunity.
It was one heartbreaking thing to do
But it was one of the bravest things i have ever done.
Now i know what it means to care til it hurts
I was worried you would never understand my choice
I cried because i thought you would forget me
Today you called to let me know you applaud my selflessness
That you have come to understand the different kinds of love
That you are much more because i chose to be less
Today i would like you to know that i stepped back but i never bailed.
That i watched your every step and smiled back from a distance.
That you have taught me that true love never forgets
