“Letting Go”
The angels gathered near your side
so very close to you
For they knew the pain and suffering
That you were going through .

I thought about many things
As I held tightly to your hand
Oh, how I wished that you were strong
And happy once again

But your eyes were looking homeward
To that place beyond the sky
where Jesus held his outreached arms
It was time to say good-bye

I struggled with my selfish thoughts
For I wanted you to stay
So we could walk and talk again
Like we did…Just yesterday

But Jesus knew the answer
And I knew you loved him so
So I gave to you life’s greatest gift
The gift of letting go
