Letting Go

Letting go is hard to do, truly

Heartstrings are very strong, sinewy

Chopping them away, chipping

Bit by bit, is painfully dewy

Letting go is hard, very hard truly!

The nest is empty, quite threadbare

Sightings of flown birds is very rare

Memories flooding the mind’s eyes

Give joy, then pain of loosened ties, as

Hope is overcome yet again by welling woes!

This is the nature of the beast, I know

Comprehension loses as it refuses to kowtow

To unrequited parental love that we must mow,

Bundle it out like flowers, without a blazing row

Shedding petals after bloom, without reaching a low

Harden our hearts, and bite the bullet we must

Make resolutions that will not bite the dust

But give us courage, to let go that we must

Or else happiness will elude making life cursed

Letting go will give peace n life will not be a bust!!!

Letting go is hard, very hard, but we must!!

Children aren’t happy with nothing to ignore, and that’s what parents were created for.

Ogden Nash
1902-1971, American Humorous Poet
