We have to let you go: a poem


We have to let you go with love

For you are in truth gone from the world

Yet not from our hearts.

We hold each precious memory of you

Each word

Each conversation

Each contact

Every special moment that we had.

Words cannot describe the sorrow of your lost presence here in the world

Yet still we see the glistening light of your affect upon our lives 

In so many precious, subtle ways.

And still we know

Inside our hearts,

Your spirit lives 

And we can feel the blessing of your love 

Surrounding us forever more.
