I’m Letting Go of You

At times, heartbreaks really bring too many things to people and it did to me as well.


I wrote a poem back then in 2013, but I would say–this piece was originally intended to the one person I have loved, deeply.

Let me mention the words of Steve Maraboli of Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience, “The truth is, unless you let go, unless you forgive yourself, unless you forgive the situation, unless you realize that the situation is over, you cannot move forward.”

To add, according to Deborah Reber of Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul: 101 Stories of Life, Love and Learning said, “Letting go doesn’t mean that you don’t care about someone anymore. It’s just realizing that the only person you really have control over is yourself.”

Today, I embark on a different journey as a musician-composer-and-arranger-friend Pipo Cifra helped me with the poem and made it into a song and interpreted by Adrian Lindayag.

The title of the song is ‘I’m Letting Go of You’ and we entered it to the Philippine Popular Music Festival, a songwriting competition open to all amateur and professional composers who are Filipinos or of Filipino descent residing in the Philippines.
