I Let Go - Poem by Jim Meyerholtz

I let it go, I tossed it up.
Then the door I slammed shut.
What was once is now gone,
It flew over the hill and beyond.

It was a time to set my mind
to look in myself, to make my find
The wind blew, the waves lap
Love flowed from me like sap.

What once was now is not
The battle lost; it was hard fought.
I went deep in myself that cold day,
WhereI go now? I can't say.

A new course has been set, A new plan
I'm on the hill so I can scan.
My eyes are open, the mind is clear.
A new look to what I hold dear.

To gain one must loose.
To decide, one must choose.
To take, one must give.
To die, one must live.

It will be hard in this new life,
With all it's pain and strife.
But the ball is rolling
It will without stalling.

Some will smile; Some will cry.
It's up to them; when I say good-by.

I can do as I must,
It will cause a fuss.

I don't want to hurt others,
I have to let go before my heart smothers.
