Letting Go

Sometimes we need to just let go and put our faith in a higher power to guide us. That is what this poem and my current situation is all about.

It is time to face reality
Come what may
I cannot hold on tight
Cause one of us will suffer
I cannot pretent it is alright
Because I do not know that it is

You see, I love you dearly
But sometimes that is not enough
The time has come
The time is right
I can only do what I can do
And you must do the rest, or not

I've no doubt that you love me too
I can put the past behind us
But can you do the same
The time has come
I am letting go

Please, do not misunderstand my actions
I am not letting go of my love
And I am not losing sight of yours
I am freeing my spirit and soul
A spiritual cleansing of sorts

The time has come
It is right now
Let me be set free
Of the self doubt I have
Of all my hidden insecurities

The time has come
It is here right now
Let me set you free too
Of the guilt you have
Of the shame and the anger

Even thou I want to hold on tight
I can no londer do so
I must set our spirits free
Please have faith as I do now
Our spirits know even what we do not
Even now they are embracing
They are healing themselves
And I pray, over time
They will begin to heal each other

Yesterday is our past
Never again to be repeated
Tomorrow is our future
I hope we get there together
But today is the day
For letting go
Come what may

BnB,

Very well said. And I'm sad that you are going through this right now. But with faith, and connecting with your true self, I believe that you will be ok. If not, I'm here if you need me.
