Let Go and Let God (dedicated to my aunt who just recently passed away)


You have suffered auntie long enough,
You were brave strong and tough.
The battle you fought was long and hard,
But it’s okay auntie let go and let God.

It has hurt all of us when you left that day,
It left me broken hearted with nothing to say.
I don’t want to be selfish say please don’t leave,
Because I did not want to hurt or grieve.

I know in my heart you are in a better place,
But I swear im going to miss your beautiful face.
I am going to miss the talks we would have,
And the stories I would tell that would make you laugh.

God just needed you to come home,
Yes we know it has made your family sore.
You will always be remembered every single day,
From the smile on your face to the things you would say.

You have taken your space in heaven right where you belong,
Right up there with Charles, Grandma, Diane, and my mom.
Yes we all know that we need to be strong,
But through our family your memory will live on.

You don’t need to fight anymore just let go and let God,
While you were here on earth you did your job.
You did your part to keep family together,
that’s why you will remain in our hearts always and forever.

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
