If You Love, Set It Free

I used to have a poster with the original phrase "If you love someone, set them free. If they come back they're yours; if they don't they never were." I went on line looking for this.. and ran across this version. Feel it's beautifully said.. and awe read the last line..

If you love someone,
Let them go,
If you love someone,
Set them free,
Close your eyes,
Wave farewell,
Tell them,
That you love them,
But they must be free,
That you care for them,
But it is time for them to leave,
To find their own way,
Their own path.
Having said your piece turn away,
And walk home.

If someone loves you,
They won't let go,
If someone loves you,
They won't want to be free,
Open your eyes,
If they return to you,
It is meant to be.

If someone does not return,
It was not meant to be,
If someone does not come back,
The love was never there,
And their love was never yours to begin with.

Possessive and controlling friendships and relationships are harmful. You can't force someone to love you. That person has to be with you because they want to be. Not because you want them to be. Most people walk in and out of our lives. Only friends leave footprints on our hearts. True love stories never have endings.
