READY TO LET GO



For My True Blue Friend



Too long I’ve kept a stranglehold,
On fond old memories,
To fragments of a bygone age,
With fierce tenacity. 

Like a child I had my fingers,
Clasped tight around a time,
When star strewn skies provided,
The cadence to my rhyme.

You smiled a little sadly,
And let my heart entwine,
Aware  I wasn’t ready,
You kept your hand in mine.

Clutched in a painful vise too long,
While I refused to grow,
Thanks for staying with me,
Till I was ready to let go.

  1. MY DEAR MYRA,
    "READY TO LET GO"
    REMINDED ME OF JESUS
    SAYING TO MARY MAGDALENE "DO NOT CLING TO ME...!"
    ONLY WHEN SHE LET GO, WOULD SHE BE ABLE TO RETURN BACK TO GOD HER FATHER!
    WE ALL MUST LET GO AND LET GOD....!
