Letting Go

by mandaceehb

With heavy hearts

We depart

Tears tug at our eyes

Make-up smudged

We spill

The messages locked in our hearts


The sadness finally hits

And we hold it in no longer

No use trying to be brave

When our words portray every weakness


I hope I left a dent

On the floor

In that place I always used to stand

But will stand no longer

I hope they hear my voice in song

Let it ring and resonate 

In their own


But at the end of our journey

Is the start of a new one for them

The end of a beautiful chapter in our lives

Marks the beginning of a blooming spring


There they will thrive
