"Letting go is just another way to say I'll always love you so" ???

I am currently listening to Barry Manilow's song, "Somewhere Down The Road". My ex sang the song for me before we broke up. He especially emphasized the part that says, "letting go is just another way to say I always love you so". I'm wondering if letting go can really be translated to "loving someone so". How can separation make one feel loved? The song of course is another case. It clearly says that the girl has big dreams and she needs to go far from the guy. So, the guy said he's letting her go for her dreams. But...yeah, somewhere down the road, they might find each other again. How about you? What is your opinion about this? Do you believe that you love best by letting go?

Realistically, both of them simply can afford to move on with life without being together. The guy, simply doesn't desire for the girl enough to fight his love for the girl. I see it as a sign of weakness(...and stupidity) in a sense that why would someone let go the one that makes him happy? I don't know but personally, i'd fight tooth and nail. The lady, let's say she has ambitions and dreams to pursue but that would be too selfish. I guess there should at least balance in maintaining a relationship and achieving dreams. So i guess letting go is just another way to say i don't love you that much.
