Letting Go


Letting Go

You will look back on the times you laughed and you will cry.

You will look back on the times you cried, and you will laugh.

You will always remember close friends

and you will keep memories of them in your heart


Life is hard – it’s tough, it’s unfair.

But everyone gets over the hurt and the pain, eventually.

And you always end up with a smile on your face,

if you give it a chance.


I’ve learned that good-byes will always hurt,

pictures will never replace having been there,

memories good and bad will bring tears,

and words can never replace feelings.


To let go isn’t to forget, not to think about, or ignore.

It doesn’t leave feelings of anger, jealousy or regret.


Letting go isn’t about winning or losing.

It’s not about pride and it’s not about how you appear

and it’s not obsessing or dwelling on the past.


Letting go isn’t blocking memories or thinking sad thoughts

and doesn’t leave emptiness, hurt or sadness.

It’s not about giving in or giving up.

Letting go isn’t about loss and it’s not about defeat.


To let go is to cherish the memories, to overcome and move on.

It’s having an open mind and confidence in the future.

Letting go is learning and experiencing and growing.


To let go is to be thankful for the experiences

that made you laugh, made you cry and made you grow.

It’s about all that you have, all that you had

and all that you will soon gain.


Letting go is having the courage to accept change

and the strength to keep moving.

Letting go is growing up.


It is realizing that the heart can sometimes be

the most potent remedy.

To let go is to open a door,

and to clear a path and set yourself free.
