I know that you are broken,
And that you feel empty and lost,
Everything seems to have come at you at once
You feel the pull in all directions
even as you stand still, not moving,
barely able to breathe.
Overwhelmed by life and everyone’s doing.
I see the sadness in your eyes
I sense the pain you’re hiding
I know that you are trying to stay strong
But the time has come when you have to let all of this go.
You need a break, a release
You must regain your inner peace.
Your greatness you hide behind a facade
of heavy lifting and a strict lifestyle.
For it gives you a sense of something you can control
It’s not something which has torn you apart….
you need to cry and let your soul know that it’s
Let your heart feel the pain so that it can love again.
Life doesn’t wait and we must appreciate being here still.
For all of those who have left us,
they did not want our souls to die with them.
Remembering them should remind us to live so that we can keep loving them…
So that their memory and legacy lives not in our pain but in our light.
You will cry, for the memories often tug at our hearts for the release…
Know that it’s okay and that it does not make you weak
All those years of pain you have felt has become heavy on your chest
Making it hard to breathe or rest.
Now that you have the time,
let it all go.
Feel what you must just don’t allow the pain to grow anymore.
Learn to let go and be light.
My greatest hope is that I see you in flight,
high in the sky,
making rainbows in the clouds whenever you have
the need to cry.
I love you so my friend
and this I hope you always remember to know,
lovely, soon-to-be un-broken, soul.
