loveing strongly deeply and completely

 

How do you let a friend go?

How do you beg them to stay?

So body weary they are

It shines in their eyes

The begging for sweet release

Yet I desire to scream

Stay with me for just one more day

Stay for a week a month at least

 

If I could but take your pain

Just bear if for a day would you stay?

I talk and talk hoping to distract you

May the grim reaper not hear you call?

Hide you behind my words from angels

But I am a friend in the end

And when the time comes I will let go

I love you, love you enough to let go

It is hard to say good-bye. the only consolation, if that's what it is, is that we too will say good-bye someday.

Wow, brings back memories, and the end is hard, but you are right, we have to love enough to let go.

...pen of friend...to let go...like a balloon in the sky...wondering if the string has left your hand...but see the lifted color...to the heavens held...to let go.
excellent compassionate pen of forever...a friend.

How deep in anguish you are, yet resolved to let go when the time comes is not an easy task. But let go we must and pray the journey into God's house is a pleasant one. God bless.....

Be always safe,
Karen
