Learning to Let Go

I tore my favourite shirt

It taught me to let go

I broke my treasured jug

It taught me to let go

 

 

I pleaded with my drunken son

at 1am in the morning

to come home

come home

come home

He said no he was fine

and walked away

It taught me to let go

I’ve lost beloved dogs

It taught me to let go

I’ve lost my way

It taught me to let go

I’ve lost friends

It taught me to let go

I’ve lost loved ones

It taught me to let go

I’ve lost weight

It taught me to let go

I’ve lost time

It taught me to let go

let go

let go

let go

let go

 

 

The mind clings

to the things

The heart ties up in strings

Yet they are pulled

and unknotted

one by one by one

Released

to fly

and we are lighter

for their loss

It would seem sometimes

The cost

of living

Is the lesson lost

in giving

life

then

In learning to let go
