Will love return…?

When love enters, there’s a song.
It’s my heart singing.
I held love in my arms.
Never wanting to let go.

I awoke, feeling uneasy.
A tightness around my heart.
I have to let you go.
Yet my heart couldn’t.

Your warmth was gone.
All that remains is coldness.
I have to let you go.
And hope you return one day.

How could I keep love caged?
I couldn’t. I let it fly away.
I had to let you go.
And watch my heart break.
