I'm sorry if I was not good enough,
I was acting tough.
It is selfish of me to make you stay.
So I'll let you free, be happy.
Let me keep the pain,
like soaking wet in the rain.
If that's the only thing I can keep from you,
I'll take all the pain as my memory of you.

You have expressed the sadness and loss of love in this emotional poem. I enjoyed reading it.
