Letting Go - Poem by Margaret Cox

The saddest story I have to tell
Of a time when things were not very well
Why do loved ones have to die
Such a little word - why, why, why
How can one explain the suffering
The terrible heartache and anguish it brings

The helpless feeling deep in the heart
To want to escape - but not be apart
Faith is so angrily tested
A life so young, so cruelly wasted.
Nothing stops the relentless progression
We release the hurt in angry aggression.

At some point we have to let go-
Peacefully go – the one we love so
We lose someone we hold most dear
Gone forever – they were once so near
Death is part of life, however sad
Give thanks for the precious time we had.

Never forget, silently stand in the rain
Let the passing of time ease the pain.
