When the times comes,
will I be able to let go?
Is there ever a time to let go of someone?
There can’t be…
My grandfather has been dead for over a decade,
My grandmother too.
But I still hold them deep in my heart.
There were like jewels in my life,
shining and sparking ever so brightly.
I can’t let go of anymore people.
Over the years I have lost friends,
and numerous other loved ones.
Some died young,
some died old.
But each one left a wound,
Each one proved again and again man’s mortality.
Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. James 4v14, KJV
That is how fleeting life is,
Here today, gone tomorrow.
It leaves me scared,
exposed and vulnerable.
What if its tomorrow?
What if its today?
I am fearful,
But I have Hope for those who die in the Lord.
I will weep endlessly and know just one day over the rainbow Lord.
And those who don’t?
It troubles my soul.
When the time comes will I be able to let go?
I hope so,
But I doubt it.
No one is ever ready… to let go of someone they love.
I hope… I can let go with the dignity that comes with sorrow and pain.
Maybe just one day….
But for now I will hold on like a hoarder.
And pray I never have to let go… at least for now.
