hard, but it has to happen sometimes...

Letting Go

I've got to let you slip away
close my eyes, dry my tears
I've got to find something to say
to compensate for those silent years

A word is drifting through my mind
singing sadly, singing low
That word is turning dark, unkind
inviting an icy wind to blow

I've got to let you slip away
close my eyes, close my heart
I've got to hope we'll be friends one day
'til then, my only love, we part.

I've got to let you go.

Zoya Zaidi
Oooooooh! One of the most difficult tasks!
To let a loved one go,
When all you want to do is to cling
Desperately to him,
Letting go can be hard,
Keeping can be harder...

You have to have a heart,
A very large heart,
To let a loved one go!

(((Hugs dear Fern for that large heart))))))

Love, xxx, take care, Zoya

I hate to let go.

I refuse to do it.

But sometimes I do, anyhow.

[On very rare occasions.]

The second stanza will make a great chorus -
I think you should turn this into a song.
