I Let You Go

A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

I Let You Go

I send you to the restless sun

Awaiting your sweet shine,

And in between this world and next

I’ll hold your hand in mine.

For it is there between the sky

And boundless clouds of blue

That those who’ve passed this way before

Are waiting there for you.

Life is made of many things,

Of love, of grief, of strife.

Women pulled by many strings,

A child, mother, wife.

And now those strings will bind no more.

You’re free to chase the wind.

This is where your troubles end

And where your peace begins.
