To the friends I let go,
how and when it happened I don’t know. 
We were inseparable once, 
and we let go with no fights or stunts. 
It hurts to let go I know,
but that urge to hold on tight left me many summers ago. 
The people lover in me now likes the small circle,
we did make efforts to cross the hurdle. 
While we were deeply focused on the hurdle, 
we probably lost the battle.
you dropped hints here and there along the way,
while I wanted you stay, I was also afraid of this day.
Every friend I let go was a lesson learnt,
because holding on crying would have only left me burnt. 
To the friends I let go,
I thank everyone for letting me grow.
