I let you go

I let you go

I’m torn

my soul says

fly, my love

as high as you can

My heart begs

you to stay

as close as you can

to me

I’m torn

my mind says

you must grow

you must be

I let you go

I let you be

I let you be free

  1. Beautiful. These last few years since my 3 have grown & gone out on their own have been the hardest & proudest of life all at the same time. At least we have texting & social media these days, gives us a good window into their lives πŸ™‚

    • Exactly, we’re very fortunate. Especially when you think it took ages just to get a letter to someone not so long ago! I remember when mail really did get lost!😁 Yes, I know that feeling well. My son and his family live in Sweden, my only child. Miss him more than I can explain.❀

  2. If you love somebody, if you love someone, then set them free. If they stick around then it was meant to be, children have to be allowed to do their own thing. Make their own way in life, but if we have taught them well then they will be ready to face anything life throws at them. The only pain is knowing we can’t hold them any longer. Peace comes with time, keep yourself safe my very dear friend xoxo

    • Thank you and yes that is the truth πŸ™‚ He’s a great young man, and I’m proud of him and where he is going and what he represents – sometimes I look at him and still see him like he was 5 yrs old, and that sometimes seems like yesterday too…love n light xoxo

      • It’s always hard to realise how quickly the time flies between birth and college. All we can do is try our best to bring them up to be decent human beings, respectful of their elders and trustworthy. The rest is up to them, love and peace always xoxo

      • Thank you and to you – yes, I have done my best – he’s been to university in another city which was tough enough but now he has travelled to greater fields in Australia which seems way too far away although he now is a grown man! I miss him and he is my only child and we are close πŸ™‚ But he stays in touch and I want him to explore the world and find out who he is and keep growing and filling up his soul πŸ™‚ xoxo
