Letting Go

Go down

Letting Go Empty Letting Go

Post  Cheryl Brickner on Fri Feb 03 2012, 16:50

Letting Go

The time has come to
Say goodbye as I saw
The twinkle in your eye.
Reminiscing things of long ago
When it seemed only
Yesterday you began to grow.
Your kind smile and
Silly laugh have always
Brought me happinest in the past.
Now it's time for you to go
Where things end up
Only God knows.
I feel an emptiness
In my heart from memories of
Your childhood which brings
A tear to start.
Only God knows the direction
You must go.
I leave you with my love so true
That continues to flow in and out of you.
As I turn to say goodbye my heart
Begins to cry.
But it's not forever
We all must try.
Your growing up so fast
That it's hard to release
You into the world.
Knowing God is in control,
I slowly let go until the next time
I see you body and soul.

oh, that's a scary thought..I'm only months away from my son who may turn to me and say he's leaving. God, hope he stays for a few years yet!-but i dread the day...
