Letting It Go

Lyrics to a new song I have written….

I had so many plans, poised to seize the day,
Roads were wide open, there was nothing in my way,
Like the greatest locomotive hurtling down the track ,
Or the mighty ship Titanic there was no turning back,
But you never know what’s lurking just up ahead,
And you can suddenly find yourself hanging by a thread,

I’m letting it go, canceling the show,
Changing course mid stream,
Starting over, forgive, forget,
Time to chase a new dream,
Tilt the sails ride the wind
Just rolling with the flow,
The time has come to embrace a new day
As it dawns, I’m letting it go.

I bought in to the glorious whimsy
That love was a storybook tale,
Who is she? Cue the joy and laughter,
On the journey to Happily Ever After,
Great loves emerged but I did not forsee,
The ones I adored just did not love for me

I’m letting it go, canceling the show,
Changing course mid stream,
Starting over, forgive, forget
Time to chase a new dream,
Tilt the sails, ride the wind
Just rolling with the flow
The time has come to embrace a new day,
As it dawns, I’m letting it go.

No longer ambling forward
Now cautious and largely unsure,
Progressing to the next day is key
With no concern for what’s in store,
The task of simply living
Replaces the desire to feel alive,
Finding meaning and inspiration
While aspiring to survive

I’m letting it go, canceling the show,
Changing course mid stream,
Starting over, forgive, forget
Time to chase a new dream,
Tilt the sails, ride the wind,
Just tolling with the flow,
The time has come to embrace a new day.
As it dawns, I’m letting it go.

  1. It’s beautifully written, but it made me cry. I’ll go back and read it tomorrow. Perhaps I won’t feel so emotional. You truly have a God-given gift for writing.
