Sunday on the blog

Michael McLean "Let it Go" (from The Best Two years)

I can still recall the hour my father told me it was time
To let it go.
Thought its mended wing had made it sings he said the bird I had cared for was not really mine.
Let it go.
Letting go he said seems to break you heart, though it will heal, it feels slow to start.
Though the pain burned within me so, he held me tight so I could let it go.
Years have passed since then and so has he, but I still hear his words:
Let it go.
There's so much of life that can't be lived while you're holding on to hurt and anger deep inside-
Let it go.
Letting go opens up the heart, there is a new day hungry to start.
You can't change what has hurt you so but you will heal if you can
Let it go.
All that's wrong in your life, let it go.
All that is worth saving is love.
Love will hold you tight.
Love lifts the burden and love shines the light.
Only love nourishes the soul, if it's not love, simply let it go.
