Let it go

It is all in your past, let it be, let it go
it has happened, it's over, it was meant to be so

it was good while it lasted, now its time to move on
you cant change it, live with it, make a song of your own

find a rythm of your life, find a path, find a way
and bring with you the good things, - just like they say

but dont walk in the shadows of what used to be
look above all the dark clouds, look ahead - not for me

walk outside, take a deep breath, then look up, see the sky?
you are here for a reason, and don't linger with "why"

feel the rain on your forehead, sense the breeze in your hair
put a hand on your chest, this is why you are here

feel your heartbeat, sense your breathing, it is here, it is now
so enjoy, live the present, and let go. Let it go

  7. This is so true. It seemed like in my own life that I was at a standstill until I just let things from the past go. Then I could move on at peace. Lovely poem filled with so much insight and truth.
