I can only

I can only

urge but never insist
argue but never defy
convince but never compel

I can only

coax but never control
pursue but never run after
love but never let go

Some context: This poem tries to capture the words of a woman who sees her love walking away. She is very much in love and realizes that she can neither stop him nor let him go.
